As part of the on-going Canada 150 celebrations in 2017, a new comedy called, Canada, It’s Complicated, is touring the country.
At first, Dakota Ray Hebert said she was “apprehensive” about being an Indigenous person involved in a Canada 150 show.
“I knew they were looking for Indigenous comedians, but I didn’t know what our roles were going to be,” said Hebert. “I didn’t want to be playing a stereotype, and I didn’t want to have to get into those headbutts of like ‘I don’t want to do this, this is not good.'”
