Events Description

Back by popular demand, Shumka’s Ancestors & Elders returns for two student matinee presentations and one public performance this March. Premiered in April of 2018, this collaborative production explores the relationship between the first Ukrainian settlers to Alberta and the Indigenous people they soon came to know. Similarities and differences. Fear and respect. The power of tradition and truth.

Survival, for both Indigenous and Ukrainian immigrant people in Alberta, often meant silence. Ancestors & Elders uses dance to break that silence; to remember those who came before us, the traditions they instilled, and the truths they endured. Shumka and Running Thunder dancers create an awe-inspiring union of Ukrainian and Indigenous cultures that is not to be missed.
