by Christine Sokaymoh Frederick
An Alberta Aboriginal Performing Arts and Punctuate! Theatre production.
A magical play-for-young-audiences, exploring culture, racism, independence and interdependence. Presented by Alberta Aboriginal Performing Arts and Punctuate! Theatre from Edmonton.
Minosis Gathers Hope is about a young Métis girl named Minosis (Cree for kitten), who meets a fairy named Pakoseyimiw (Cree for Hope), and their ensuing adventures to understand the meaning of culture; its mythology and legends. In the piece, Minosis travels the 4 four directions of her grandparent’s yard in search of medicine wheel-coloured ribbons, thereby sparking the magic of ceremony.
