The Spirit Horse Returns

13 April 2024 - 2:00 pm Thunder Bay Community Auditorium



Back by popular demand! “The Spirit Horse Returns” is a powerful concert production that combines traditional teachings, original visual art, music, and an all-new orchestral score to tell the story of the Ojibwe Horses, traditional helpers and spirit guides for First Nations and Métis people. It’s a journey of hope and reconciliation as Indigenous and non-Indigenous people come together to rescue the last of these horses and give them new life. Suitable for all ages, this production is an entertaining opportunity to learn about Indigenous cultures, reconciliation, and how we all play a part in the future of the land and its inhabitants.
