National Day for Truth & Reconciliation - Presentation & Art Displays
Join the Town of Porcupine Plain & Metis Nation Saskatchewan Eastern Region II at the Porcupine Plain Community Hall for a video presentation by Amy Seesequasis on the topic of Truth & Reconciliation, along with Elder Margaret Harrison with her display of Métis artwork, followed by time for visiting and refreshments.
*Amy Seesequasis is one of the Managers & Lead Dancers of the Creeland Dancers, an Indigenous dance group that specializes in a fusion of Metis jigging and square dancing. The group was formed nearly 40 years ago by Cree elders Therese Seesequasis and her late husband Ken Seesequasis as a way to promote culture and create opportunity for youth. Amy is proud to continue her family's legacy of providing not only a high energy, entertaining show, but an educational experience focused on First Nations and Metis cultural enrichment and reconciliation. Amy will be performing elsewhere on September 30th, but will provide a captivating pre-recorded presentation on the topic of Truth & Reconciliation.
*Elder Harrison has been an Indigenous leader for over 60 years of her life, teaching Métis culture and Michif language to younger generations. She is an accomplished Métis textile artist, practices Métis-style floral embroidery, and is one of few remaining Métis women to continue to make hooked rag rugs. In recent years, Elder Harrison has become a member of the Elders’ Branch in Métis Nation-Saskatchewan’s Eastern Region II and is now spearheading a mobile library that brings Indigenous authors and illustrator books and literature to all over the Northeast region.
