The Mush Hole acknowledges the lives and spirits of Mohawk Institute residential school survivors. Keeping hope as the driving force the performance offers truth and relives the devastating impacts on the students and parents without their children. It is about survival, resilience, and is an embodied way to say: “Enskwakhwahshón:rien” – we will feed your hunger, “kwè:iahre – we remember you, kwanorónhkhwa – we love you. Conceived by Six Nations Artist/ Director Santee Smith, incoming Chancellor of McMaster University, in collaboration with Onkwehon:wen artists Julianne Blackbird, Montana Summers, Semiah Smith, Brandon A. Oakes, The Mush Hole opens the mind, heart and spirit toward a path of feeling and experiencing. We welcome all to share in dialogue and reflect on the performance. This event is for general audiences.

Please be aware there are mature themes involved and not recommended for ages 12 and under.
