An epic Métis love story.

We follow Iskwewo, Napew, and Mistatim through eight intertwined stories of love, loss, and the fight of the Métis people as the Métis nations emerge across the plains amidst the fur trade’s robust colonization. As we experience the love stories shared by the Callihoos, through the political uprisings of the 1930s and into the present day, we witness their struggle to protect their people and celebrate their resilient sovereignty as Métis women.

Experience the premiere of this new work by Jessie Award-winning playwright, Tai Amy Grauman, inspired by the stories of Métis women in her family (the Callihoos). Produced by Savage Society, the company that brought you Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer.
