Masq’alOFF! Day

To salute Spring and honour the Abenakis territory on which we live, we invite you outside in the forest for a very special happening!

2 pm: Abenakis story with Nicole O’Bomsawin
Nicole O’Bomsawin studied anthropology and museology. She was curator of Odanak’s Abenakis Museum for almost 20 years. She is a defender of women’s rights, an environmentalist and a multidisciplinary artist (storytelling, dance and music) fighting for the diffusion and protection of traditional Abenaki culture.

3pm: Mama Khan, le chant de la terre Lakota (Mama Khan, Song of Lakota Land) with Khadija El Mahdi
Khadija El Mahdi is a Moroccan actress, author and researcher of masked theatre. She has been working on a life project since 2012 called The 13 Paths of Grandmother Earth. Mama Khan, le chant de la terre Lakota (Maka Khan, Song of Lakota Land) is the first in a series of travelogues focused on femininity, otherness, the magic of dreams and the strength of art. The second component, Mama Khan, le chant berbère de l’eau (Mama Khan, The Berber Water Song), will be presented on the weekend of May 25-26 at the Camillois.
