Thank you to Amanda Wandler for writing this review of Kamloopa, the Governor General’s Award winning play by Kim Senklip Harvey. Kamloopa is a high-energy Indigenous matriarchal story that follows two urban Indigenous sisters and a lawless Trickster as they come to terms with what it means to honour who they are and where they come from.
From the review:
“Although Kim Senklip Harvey’s Kamloopa portrays a journey (a spiritual journey, a journey of reclamation, and a road trip) of three First Nations womxn from the Syilx Nation, which is just one of many distinct Indigenous nations throughout Canada, its themes resonate with individuals from all nations, on the way creating a sense of connection and shared experience. Each time I picked up Kamloopa, I found myself laughing and crying.”
