This Indigenous History Month, we celebrate the role of Indigenous Theatre in celebrating and revitalizing Indigenous languages.

Indigenous Theatre Artistic Director Kevin Loring and actor and director Charles Bender will engage on the topic of language. Bender, who adapted Loring’s play Where the Blood Mixes/Là où le sang se mêle into French, will chat with Kevin about the translation process and delve deeper into the importance of language in the arts and beyond. Loring’s play, which won a 2009 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama award-winning play, was presented in French and English during Indigenous Theatre’s premiere arts festival, Mòshkamo.
