About the Play

Ayita by Teneil Whiskeyjack is a calling back to one’s spirit and voice. It is a modern-day creation story meets Indigenous realities that are told through text and movement. This show is a fusion of theatre and Indigenous contemporary dance following three Cree women. Each in a different cycle of their womanhood, yet seamlessly interconnected to one another, these women navigate through their own stories of sovereignty, breaking free from and transcending past personal pain, stepping into their healing and liberation, awakening to their medicine.
