Kaahsinnoniks

Making Treaty 7 - Kaahsinnoniks (our ancestors)
October 3 and 4, 2018 at 7:30pm

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.
… an uplifting example of how reconciliation can express itself through the arts."

~ Marie Wilson, Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada
