When two white Bison calves are birthed from a genetically manipulated herd owned by a Saskatchewan First Nation, a media circus erupts. Controversy ignites over the calves’ spiritual, commercial, and scientific significance between the local First Nation, European Union capitalists, and a group of new age spiritualists roaming the plains. In an age of social change, social justice warriors, and social media callouts, The Herd will keep us thinking long after we leave the theatre.
Kenneth T. Williams is a Cree playwright from the George Gordon First Nation in Saskatchewan’s Treaty 4 territory. He is the first Indigenous person to earn an M.F.A. in playwriting from the University of Alberta, where he now teaches in the theatre department.
