The Honouring is a site-specific multi-disciplinary performance honouring First Nations warriors of the War of 1812 and features Onkwehonwe families who sacrificed to protect Haudenosaunee sovereignty, culture and land. Audiences will be immersed in a history that is rarely experienced anywhere else and will have the opportunity to understand the complexity of the War of 1812 through the experiential lens of First Nations, offering a human face to our history. All First Nations took part in the War of 1812 as sovereign Nation allies to Britain. The Honouring pays homage to their personal sacrifices and belief in what was the best for their family, community and future generations.
This is a pay-what-you-can performance.
