Territory is a site-specific short film created by dance artist Jeanette Kotowich (Cree/Métis and European ancestry). It embodies territory and acknowledges land, with the intention that those witnessing will be inspired to do the same. With deep reverence it is filmed on the unceded, ancestral lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Watuth) First Nations.
Filmed, performed and edited by Jeanette Kotowich
Tsilhqot’in Loon Song adapted by Cindy M Charleyboy, as taught by the late Madeline Myers
Created with the support of the Festival of Recorded Movement
