Christine Friday

Christine is an Anishinaabekwe from the Temagami First Nation. She is a proficient and resilient Indigenous storyteller. She began her career with In the Land of Spirits in 1992, and has maintained a professional dance career for over 27 years, choreographing solo work, commissioned work, youth creations, dance programming for youth, and full-scale productions. She launched her company Friday Creeations, a film and stage production company, and recently created/produced a 10-minute documentary dance film called “Path Without End” which is about her family story. She was awarded the 2018 K.M. Hunter Award for Dance through the Ontario Arts Council.

Christine is deeply connected to the cultural wellness of her people and works hard to maintain cultural traditions and gifts of her Anishinaabe people. Her intention is to awaken people within themselves, creating a shift change in the world by reflecting reality and the human experience. She is currently building a vision for a Cultural Creation Centre in her community of Bear Island, Lake Temagami.
