recognizing, celebrating, sharing, remembering, healing
A WORD FROM THE HOST OF BLACKFEATHER
We acknowledge we are on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We thank them for having and continue to care for this land and look forward to respectfully working with them in partnership towards a better future.
My name is Christine Marie.
The world once was tribal and over time, some teachings have survived while many were lost. This show is about recognizing, celebrating, sharing, remembering, healing, respecting and reconciling those teachings. It welcomes all who take an active part in healing, honouring, decolonizing, fighting for the rights of all, including land, waterways and air beings around the world. Be it in the beginning part of the journey, an experienced professional, a keeper of the knowledge or with an elder, Blackfeather celebrates everyone.
We recognize traditional, contemporary, fusion, urban, tribal, classical, and all forms of storytelling which connects with the traditional ways of all nations, honouring all that lives on Mother Earth. In today’s world, we still share our one Great Mother; we need to unite.
May the next step before you, be the one you need.
