We at Debaj are deeply saddened to have to tell our faithful guests, clients and patrons that, because of some unforeseen circumstances with our staff, we have had to postpone our annual Seasonal Celebration of 30 Years of Debajery. We will be presenting this work in early February of 2018 in a Winter Celebration of Storytelling.
We apologize for the short notice of cancellation. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Debajehmujig was the first - and remains the only - professional theatre company located on a Reserve in Canada. The organization was founded by Shirlee Cheechoo, Blake Debassige and a group of like-minded colleagues in the summer of 1984 in West Bay (M'Chigeeng First Nation) Manitoulin Island, Ontario. In August of 1989, the company moved to Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve, where it's headquarters remains to this day.
