ELAPULTIEK (We Are Looking Towards), a play by shalan joudry, will be performed on Thursday evening.
Inspired by real-life species at risk work, shalan joudry — oral storyteller, poet, ecologist, & mother from the traditional district of Kespukwitk — originally wrote this story for an outdoor performance for Two Planks and a Passion Theatre.

❝Elapultiek calls on all of us to take a step back from our routine lives and question how we may get to understand our past and work better together. The ideal of weaving between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worlds involves taking turns to speak and to listen, even through the most painful of stories, in order for us all to heal. We are in a time when sharing cultural, ecological, and personal stories is vital in working towards a peaceful shared territory, co-existing between peoples and nature.❞
