12 pm-3 pm

guided by the land, the wisdom and teachings of Mama Earth and the great Ancestors, lisa nevada will thoughtfully traverse the indoor spaces of Tangente at Espace Danse as a part of MAQAHATINE, curated by Ivanie Aubin-Malo.  lisa will move, sound, and sing an offering of gratitude, a cleansing to restore balance and to open us up for a blessing in the form of a migrating lullaby.  the lullaby cycle, with its modulation and repetitive nature, is intended to conjure the lasting energy of harmony and healing amongst participants and their communities.  intimate and embracing, lullaby: an offering/ a cleansing/ a blessing permeates the senses and the surrounding landscape with gentle vibrations of sound and movement.  please join lisa in honoring Mama Earth and the Indigenous land stewards before us with breath, healing intentions and song.

Hello! Join us for the Maqahatine/Let's gather together, A family event for all the Indigenous nations so we can meet in the winter and still practice our songs, our dances, exchange with our peers and work on our arts and crafts. There will be soup and bannock for everyone, prepared by Chef Maluh! A place for informal transmission for all ages and indigenous nations will take place for the simple pleasure to gather regularly and go through the winter more easily, for those who feel the need.
