We Are All Treaty People
Artist: Quest Theatre and Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society
Two grade six girls, one from the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the other of European descent find their friendship barred by a trickster who reveals the complex shared history of the land of their ancestors. Can they still become friends given the struggles of the past? We Are All Treaty People is a reimagining of the highly regarded Making Treaty 7 theatrical production. Told through songs, prayers, creative movement, and puppetry; the play’s intent is to inspire positive relationships across all cultures and generations.
