Special Notes:

This show is approx 60 minutes (no intermission). Not recommended for young children.

Trigger Warning:  Please be aware that this performance includes references to harmful impacts of European-Canadian colonization suffered by L’nu’k (Mi’kmaq). Some of these include: abuse at the residential school, forced separation of families, forced relocation, loss of access to hunting and fishing grounds, small pox, genocide as well as lasting inter-generational effects of these.
No Alcohol:  The KOQM team acknowledges the devastating role that alcohol played through colonization in compounding trauma to Indigenous families and communities. For this reason no alcohol will be available for sale in association with this production. Non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available.
Talkback:  There will be a 30-minute discussion period after every evening performance for audience members who would like to stay for further conversation. Writer and actor shalan joudry welcomes questions or reflections that the show might have sparked.
