About the Program

Lee Maracle read excerpts from her book, Sundogs. Framed in the summer of Elijah Harper's quiet "No" reverberating the barricades of Kahnesetake across the country, a young Métis sociology student searches for her connection to it all.

"I found the self I need to believe in. I witness the terrible journey we have made to come home, home, to the warm fires of our ways, home to a place where great love peoples our private selves, where devotion lives, devotions so deep will risk our perfect right to be. Deep black solitude is the birth place of my understanding and the sweat, the blackness of it takes on meaning. In deep black solitude my sweating body hothouses my renaissance."


Technical Director: Archer Pechawis
