“It’s finally happening!! After many years of listening, writing, visiting partnering communities and fundraising Weaving Reconciliation: Our Way is now ready to tour across Turtle Island/Canada.
And it’s starting on Coast Salish territory at the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre May 17-27, 2018.
Weaving Reconciliation: Our Way is a new play and cultural encounter that brings to life the story of Old One and his journey to reconcile with himself, his family and his community.
Woven around indigenous storytelling and cultural teachings, Weaving Reconciliation: Our Way is co-written by award-winning artists Renae Morriseau (Saulteaux Cree) with Rosemary Georgeson (Coast Salish/Sahtu Dene) and Savannah Walling (American Canadian). It is also enriched by contributions from the cast, knowledge-keepers and partnering communities.

Although we are well on our way to production, we are still raising funds for a few select, yet vital aspects to the project like food for cultural gatherings, mentorship fees for youth, and ceremonial gifts for each community we visit along the tour: donation page.”
