Two grade six girls, one from the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the other of European descent, want to be friends, but a trickster reveals the complex shared history of the land of their ancestors, the spirit and intent of Treaty 7, and the subsequent challenges of First Nations people. Can they still become friends given the struggles of the past? We Are All Treaty People is a reimagining of the highly regarded Making Treaty 7 theatrical production. Told through songs, prayers, creative movement, and puppetry; the play’s intent is to inspire positive relationships across all cultures and generations.
