Land of Stories

November 18, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This land we walk on is full of stories. Some live in broad daylight, some hide in shadow, others cast long shadows upon us. Land of Stories is a landmark shadow puppet performance drawing audience members of all ages into a tender, poignant world of Ojibwe culture and history. Narrated by Zhi-shay (Uncle Wolf) and Oshkinawe (Young Frank Doolittle), Land of Stories takes audiences on a dreamlike journey that begins with the Anishinaabe Seven Fires Prophecy and ends with a boy receiving guidance from Migizi (bald eagle) on his long journey home from Indian boarding school. Alarmingly beautiful, Land of Stories features the artistry of nine local Ojibwe writers, visual artists, and musicians. Rich in visual poetry, Land of Stories gently welcomes us to consider how stories from the past live on in the land beneath our feet.
