Paddle Song

By Dinah Christie with Tom Hill
Directed by Dinah Christie
 

Celebrating a Canadian literary pioneer!

Paddle Song explores the life and times of E. Pauline Johnson, famed Mohawk poet from Six Nations, Ontario. We follow Johnson from a little girl on Chiefswood to writer and performer, touring across the countryside and home again.

Pauline was a trailblazer artist of mixed blood heritage who toured across Canada, the United States, and Europe celebrating her art and culture.

Co-presented with the 30th Annual High Performance Rodeo
