A collaboration between the artists of Making Treaty 7, Quest Theatre, and Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society for Young Audiences, here’s your chance to see We Are All Treaty People as it continues its national tour.

An important theatrical production, swing by Fort Calgary for a special Saturday brunch and a performance.

We Are All Treaty People tells the story of the first day of grade six for two young girls. Alanna, a girl from Tsuut’ina, is new to the school and wonders why a certain girl keeps staring at her. Maya is curious because she has never met a First Nations person. But when a Trickster opens his knowledge bundle to reveal the shared history of the land of their ancestors, the spirit and intent of Treaty 7, the miscommunications involved, the intent of the Colonials, and the subsequent and ongoing challenges for Indigenous Peoples, is it even possible for them to become friends?

Told with Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists through songs, prayers, creative movement, and puppetry, the play aims to inspire positive relationships across cultures and generations.

Catch We Are All Treaty People on June 9, 2018 at Fort Calgary (750 9th Ave. SE). All tickets include complimentary admission to the museum, brunch, and the performance.
