Inspired by historical research, a team of professional and community performers use vignettes to explore The Dish With One Spoon, The Toronto Purchase, The Treaty of Niagara and more, with humour, boldness and beaver puppets. The Talking Treaties Spectacle was first presented at Fort York in June 2017, as part of the Indigenous Arts Festival and Jumblies’ Touching Ground Festival of new works.
