BWDC Presents: Kisiskâciwan

BWDC Presents: Kisiskâciwan

by Jeanette Kotowich

March 15 - March 16

Memories of my childhood summer, embraced by the Kah-tep-was valley, the vast prairie and gently rolling landscape has echoed its lasting impression and whispered a language of inspiration. It is an untamed remembering of ancestral homeland and lineage.

A creative return to the fast-flowing landscape of Saskatchewan, the robust and undulating land of Jeanette’s great-grandmothers and great-great-grandfathers, Kisiskâciwan is a journey to one’s self. It speaks through dance to a Métis cultural narrative of identity and home.

The Kah-tep-was (Nêhiyaw for river that calls) is a two-kilometer wide, 180-meter deep valley is a sacred place that calls generations of peoples for gathering, hunting, and spiritual replenishment.
