Okinum breathes our dreams into being through a performance of remembrance and healing.
Inspired by a recurring dream of a giant beaver, Okinum (which means “dam” in Anishinaabemowin) reflects on the power of culture and language. The performer takes us through her discovery of a connection between her recurring dreams and ancestry, as she learns to treat herself with traditional medicines.  

Immerse yourself in an experience that draws the audience into the world of dreams through sound, video, language, and storytelling. The performance bridges the gap between three  languages: English, French and the language of the land: Anishinaabemowin.
