Ancestors & Elders - Ukrainian Shumka Dancers

Ukrainian Shumka Dancers
April 27 & 28, 2018

Ancestors & Elders is a project borne from a desire to connect the Ukrainian settler experience to that of the indigenous people of Treaty 6 territory. In a production to feature a cast of Shumka Dancers and multidisciplinary indigenous artists, our goal is to share a story of the first Ukrainian newcomers to Canada, exploring the shared values—as well as respected differences—between Ukrainian and First Nations people.

Ancestors & Elders will have its premiere in April of 2018 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. The premiere dates will include public evening performances. Relevant outreach and educational events/programs will be part of the project as well. Plans are to have it presented for school educational programs in the future.
