Memorial Dedication

 

In February 2015, we lost two dear friends and colleagues of our Performing Turtle Island community - Michele Sereda and Lacy Morin-Desjarlais, along with Michael Green and Narcisse Blood.

At the Opening Reception, the Collective Performance Storytelling Ensemble will play the Turtle Island Song and perform our Memorial Dedication to honour their lives.


Turtle Island Song

 

Turtle Island, land and water

We dance our journey home

Beneath the starry map

 

For those before, here, to come

The living earth our drum

We play on Turtle Island
