Description

Cobechenonk Shadow Canoe Show: Work-in-progress showing

We can tell you that our relationship to Cobechenonk (Humber River) goes much deeper than 150 years. We can telll you that the river has been an important waterway since time immemorial. That it continues to be a significant site for many Indigenous people. We can tell you many things about Cobechenonk, but actually, we’d rather invite you to board one of our canoes and experience it for yourself.

Explore and share stories of the river and teachings about water, the animals, plants, and ancestors of the river past and present. Paddle a canoe with us as these stories are brought to life by shadow puppetry. Or if you prefer to stay on land, sit and share food, songs and stories from Elders and hand drummers. A fire will be lit.

Presented by Eventual Ashes and the Balance Bringers

Elders and Storytellers: Wanda Whitebird, Ma-Nee Chacaby, Blu Waters, Michael White, Joce Tremblay
Directed by Gein Wong, Producer Erika Pulfer
