We Are All Treaty People

Co-produced by Quest Theatre &
Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society

Alberta

A treaty is a promise.

Alana, who is First Nations, and Maya, who is of colonial descent, know little about each other’s cultures. A wise Trickster wonders if they can still be friends. Through song, creative movement and puppetry, this inspiring production embraces Truth and Reconciliation and forges relationships across cultures – all while educating and entertaining.
