only 3 more shows at the Toronto FR!NGE Festival !

Gary Farmer's Laughing Dog Plays
(Six Nations of the Grand River)


- comedy with a sharp edge - collectively created by the actors, under the direction of Jodi Miller.

Seven young performers of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations Confederacy) express their diverse viewpoints. Energetically using innovative contemporary theatrics while grounded in Indigenous traditional forms digitalNDN portrays life on the Rez: Sav-Rap, video clips, tainted water, clowning, and of course BINGO ! ( someone's gotta win, will it be you ? )

Native Youth Barricade Lippincott Street in Toronto !

In an attempt to get your attention, and that of federal and provincial officials stalling at the negotiating table, digitalNDN will blockade Lippincott Street in Toronto. Attention must be paid. These youth have found their voices, and you need to listen.

Until recently, reporters had not been allowed onto the controversial Reclamation Site in Caledonia since the the action began 28 February 2006. Mainstream Media has frequently projected a negative spin on this peaceful demonstration. digitalNDN offers a unique opportunity to hear directly from the coming generation of native artists about this historic crossroads, and to be entertained all the while.

Hilarious and honest, these stories will stay with you!

Hi there! Good luck with your event.

Just so you know, it's customary on babble to choose one forum in which to announce your event, and then just stick to one thread for it. Otherwise, people consider it to be spamming.

So, I'm going to close this thread and leave the one you started in the Aboriginal Issues and Culture thread open.

Best of luck with your show - it sounds excellent.
