Firewater Thunderbird Rising

Concept, Choreography & Performance by Christine Friday 
Co-presented by Friday Creeations and Native Earth Performing Arts

FEBRUARY 16 – 19, 2023

Firewater Thunderbird Rising is the transformative spirit of dance travelling through dimensional realms of existence – ancestors, dreams, blood memory and the land directly connected to our Anishinaabek way of living, awakening the healing of our Nation’s future. 

Opening the performance will be a 10-minute documentary dance film, Path Without End, that witnesses the Friday family taking back their power from Shingwauk residential school and speaking their truth on their traditional tribal family hunting territory.

Running Time: Approximately  60 minutes
Each performance will have a post-show Q&A.
