Patricia Cano in Tomson Highway’s The (Post) Mistress
The Ode’min Giizis Festival is presented by O’Kaadenigan Wiingashk (OKW) and Public Energy in Peterborough, Ontario. From June 20-24 2012, Indigenous artists, including musicians, performers, visual artists, writers, storytellers, artisans, and dancers will gather to expand our imagination and dreams while pushing the boundaries of their art forms.
One event that has organizers very excited is the staging of The (Post) Mistress, a new musical penned by leading Native playwright and musician Tomson Highway.
The Ode’min Giizis Festival celebrates this auspicious time of year and traditional Anishinaabe territory with a five day multi-disciplinary arts festival in Peterborough, Ontario featuring local and visiting artists from the four directions. OKW and Public Energy invite you to come out to experience a diversity of Indigenous artistic expression and events – including the community procession, the traditional gathering, gallery exhibitions, performance art, talks, dance, storytelling, theatre, and music concerts.

Candy blinked and stifled a yawn.
“Because,” roared F with wild eyes, nearly startling Candy out of her seat, “the mole is not a real mole at all!”
“Okay, Doc, I believe you. Just chill, okay.”
