Grounded in the Blackfoot word Kaahsinnoniks, which roughly translates to ancestor—yet means so much more—join Making Treaty 7 for its new production that takes a fresh look at the history and legacy of the events at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877.

Bringing together dance, theatre, music, and poetry built on guidance and stories from Treaty 7 Elders, the performance explores the true spirit and intent of what the treaty meant to Indigenous peoples, while investigating the consequences and implications of Treaty 7 today.

The show marks the directorial debut of Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society’s Artistic Director, Justin Many Fingers, and is written by Sable Sweet Grass, Telly James, and Troy Emery Twigg.

Kaahsinnoniks (Our Ancestors) runs October 3 and 4, 2018 at the Southern Alberta Jubliee Auditorium (1415 14th Ave. NW).
