2018 Events

Kaahsinnoniks (our ancestors)

October - Southern Jubilee Auditorium - Alberta

November - Ottawa

The Blackfoot word Kaahsinnoniks 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 in 2017, in 2018 we take a fresh look at the history and legacy of the events at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877. 

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.

Kiitistinnoniks (our mothers)

October - Martha Cohen - Calgary

Kiitistinnoniks was performed at the Martha Cohen Theatre in October 2018. In another first, this fall the society hosted a gathering Elders, but this time it was all female Elders. These powerful ladies from the various Treaty 7 nations honoured the artists and each other with their stories. These stories of hope, resilience, and culture had never been heard before, and they inspired the artists for this show. After that retreat, the all-female cast and crew started the creative process. Many of them shared stories of their personal experiences and worked together to find the collective through-line. 

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.
