“Giiwedin is a new opera written in Anishnawbe Mowin, French and English. Penned by Algonquin playwright Spy Dénommé-Welch, it tells the story of a 150-year old Aboriginal woman fighting for her land. This tour-de-force combination of powerful lyrics and world-class composition is a testament to the promise of Aboriginal theatre.”
