“Stolen Sisters” by Leahdawn Helena

August 16 @ 12:00 am - September 5 @ 12:00 am NDT

True tales of the Beothuk are lost forever to time, but a new play from PerSIStence Theatre will explore the lives and legacy of a people now culturally extinct due to colonial violence.

Written by L’nu playwright Leahdawn Helena, STOLEN SISTERS  stars renowned Inuk performer Deantha Edmunds.

Historical record tells us a little of child Oubee, woman Shanawdithit, and elder Santu Toney. While exact details may be forever lost, there is still much Truth to be shared from their narratives – Truth that has been obscured or ignored by colonial storytellers.

Drawing from her own journey of Reconciliation as a member of the Qalipu Nation, Leahdawn Helena crafts a play that attempts to honour their Truth.
