World Premiere

From a gathering of Elders, these never-before heard stories of hope, resilience and ancestry are the guiding force of Kiitistsinnoniks. Written, directed and designed by an all-female cast and crew, our newest production is in solidarity of our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

Women have always been the backbone of our culture and we ask ourselves, what happens to a culture when the women disappear?

Creating the Show

Consistent with the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society process of learning from Treaty 7 peoples, for the first time in our history we will be hosting a two-day retreat for a group of female Elders from Treaty 7 Nations. The Elders will be sharing stories with the cast and designers of Kiitistsinnoniks. That shared experience is at the heart of all creative elements of this production.

In addition to our source information and the blessing from our Elders to share our stories, the cast and crew are consulting with experts in fields pertaining to missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada to help further inform us and include a national perspective in the performance.

With this inspiration from the Elders, the creative team uses our stories of hope, resilience and ancestry as the guiding force for their work. The result of this collaboration will be this world premiere of Kiitistsinnoniks.
