WANISKA WEESAKECHAK (40 minutes)

Trickster, a huge part of the Indigenous world for thousands of years, is born of the stories of the people.   After the coming of the Europeans, the effects of the trains, starvation and residential schools, many of Trickster’s stories are no longer told.  After he People move farther and farther away from their connection to earth, history and culture and hope seems lost,  The Human Beings discover that it is through the language, dance, stories and culture that the healing will return.   They realize the need for the stories, for Trickster to return and remain in the lives of the Human Beings for generations to come.  The hope for the future is displayed through an awe-inspiring team hoop dance to contemporary music.
