MAKING TREATY 7 – KAAHSINNONIKS

(Our Ancestors)

October 3 and 4, 2018 7:30PM at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium

Our 2018 Making Treaty 7 production is grounded in the Blackfoot word Kaahsinnoniks which roughly translates to ancestor – yet means so much more. Building on the Making Treaty 7 productions which saw sold-out crowds since 2014 and a national tour last year, in 2018 we take a fresh look at the history and legacy of the events at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877. Making Treaty 7 is a unique intertwined work of dance, theatre, music and poetry built on guidance and stories from Treaty 7 Elders, and through them our Kaahsinnoniks. The performance invites an exploration of the true spirit and intent of what the treaty meant to Indigenous peoples, while investigating the consequences and implications of Treaty 7, 141 years later.

KIITISTSINNONIKS

(Our Mothers)

World Premiere

October 24, 25, 26 at 7:30 PM at the Martha Cohen Theatre at Arts Commons

From a gathering of Elders, these never-before heard stories of hope, resilience and ancestry are the guiding force of Kiiktistinnoniks. Written, directed and designed by an all-female crew, our newest production is in solidarity of our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Women have always been the backbone of our culture and we ask ourselves, what happens to a culture when the women disappear?
