“Performing at SkirtsAfire was the spark that incited our collective, a group of ten artists with completely different backgrounds and stories, to defy the stereotype that women are weak, and to showcase how beautiful it is to see women working together to support each other.”

– Sandra Olarte, Aerial Artist

SkirtsAfire respectfully acknowledges that we are telling stories in ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, Amiskwacîwâskahikan, also known as Edmonton, on the traditional and ancestral homeland of diverse Indigenous peoples including Nehiyawak (Cree), Métis, Inuit, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux, who have lived and travelled through this place thousands of years before us. We are all treaty people and as settlers to Treaty 6 Territory, which is also home to Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, we are striving to better listen, understand, and learn from the Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing. We respect and celebrate the languages, history and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit, whose presence continues to enrich this vibrant community. There are many stories to tell and SkirtsAfire continues to focus on building relationships with Indigenous, BIPOC and non-Indigenous women, non-binary and Two-Spirit people, giving a platform for underrepresented stories to be shared through live performance.
