From Creator/Performer Trina Moyan: This story was originally created for and with my friend the great Lee Maracle who passed away on Remembrance Day, November 11th, 2021. An interesting day for Lee to go on her journey given that she spent her life encouraging us to ‘remember ourselves’. This story that was inspired by her philosophical musings on life, on being a woman, on blood memory and about women taking their rightful place in society. A timely piece to reflect the MMIWG2S movement. It was never fully written down because it was birthed out of a traditional form of oral story keeping and the traditional way of telling stories from the heart and in the moment. In that, each time I or the story teller shares it – the story changes and is transformed by the listeners in the room. My effort to write the story down, is a beginning to help formally stage the piece within western theatrical parameters. It will always be an evolving work but for now we have tried to align it within the western theatre framework.
