The Spirit Horse Returns


16 April 2023 - 2:00 pm Thunder Bay Community Auditorium

Program

An Indigenous knowledge keeper takes us through time to meet the mysterious “small horses of the deep woods” who were helpers and spirit guides to First Nations and Métis people. Exploring the diversity of Indigenous cultures, we visit the magnificent Horse Nations of the prairies and Northern Ontario. The Spirit Horse Returns combines an all-new rich and tuneful orchestral score, delightful songs, traditional teachings, and stunning colourful visual art. It provides young audiences
with inspiring and age-appropriate explorations of truth and reconciliation.
