Performing Turtle Island: Indigenous Theatre on the World Stage
Views theatre performance as both a mode of empowerment and self-determination and a way of placing Indigenous performance in dialogue with other nations, both on the shores of Turtle Island and on the world stageUnderstanding Indigenous cultures as critical sources of knowledge and meaning, each essay addresses issues that remind us that the way to reconciliation between Canadians and Indigenous peoples is neither straightforward nor easily achieved. Comprised of multidisciplinary and diverse perspectives, Performing Turtle Island considers performance as both a means to self-empowerment and self-determination, and a way of placing Indigenous performance in dialogue with other nations, both on the lands of Turtle Island and on the world stage.
