Part of the Café-causerie — Budding creations! event
Four creative teams present their works-in-progress.
The people of the territory of the bears invite you to accompany Ashini, young Innu, on his fantastic journey of discovery through the sweat lodge ritual. In this world of visions and dreams where the Oni creature from Japanese folklore meets the Wolverine from Native American mythology, he will meet a little Japanese girl from the seventh century. Could they all be part of the same quest?
