Public Energy presents the hit play Cottagers and Indians from Tarragon Theatre, written by Drew Hayden Taylor, who is a member of Curve Lake First Nation.
Wild rice sparks a battle royal between an indigenous farmer and a white cottager, whose increasingly bitter dispute becomes a microcosm for reconciliation. Told with warmth and humour, and encompassing issues of community, respect and ownership, Cottagers & Indians is a tale for our times. The cast and crew of Cottagers and Indians would like to thank the Centre for Indigenous Theatre for the loan of the canoe. The canoe frame was constructed by Tim Hill of The Rabbit’s Choice.
“There no real heroes or villains in a story like this,
only people trying to look after their families.”
