An Honour Story

A story created to honour the community people who have dedicated their lives to the reclamation of our identity, not as Indians, but as Anishaabeg, transforming the sound of the distant drum into the heartbeat of our communities.

July 16, 2011

A group of thespians - professional and amateurs, writers and directors, performers and technicians, singers and songwriters, husbands and wives, farmers and pharmacists, and anybody else who signs up, will INKubate - create, write, direct, reherse, and perform.

In 2000 the company of artists at Debajehmujig began to explore the question, what is the future for young Aboriginal men in Canada and what is a modern expression of traditional storytelling from an Anishnabe perspective. This began a long journey that brought the company together with Traditional Odawa Elder, Eddie King from Wikwemikong and opened the pathway to the foundation teachings and traditional knowledge that would form the basis of the Eighteen thousand year history of the Anishnabe on Turtle Island.
