FINDING THE VOICES.
A powerful new work exploring language reclamation and revitalization from one of our most compelling local artists. This multi-generational story explores one family’s connection and disconnection between language, culture, and community. In order to rediscover what was lost, and to move forward in understanding, each generation must learn from the other with the help of wily trickster and teacher sek̓lép (coyote).
Based on in-person interviews conducted across the Secwépemc Nation, Echoes of the Homesick Heart shares stories of this land by incorporating lived experiences and the real-life voices of youth to elders—celebrating the resilience of Indigenous families, communities, and culture.
