Ancestors & Elders is a project born 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, the Ukrainian Shumka Dancers’ 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.
