More about We Treaty People

As a company we are seeking to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call To Action #83, to support good ways “for Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists to undertake collaborative projects and produce works that contribute to the reconciliation process.” We are mindful also of the Calls For Justice from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, particularly #6.1 which urges artists and arts producers to “take decolonizing approaches to their work” and to “support Indigenous people sharing their stories, from their perspectives, free of bias, discrimination, and false assumptions, and in a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive way.”

This project is made possible by a Digital Now Grant from Canada Council for the Arts.

*The participation of these Artists is arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association under the provisions of the Dance Opera Theatre Policy (DOT).
