Indigenous Storytelling from Dallas Yellowfly

Ivy 8 Day on Tuesday, October 29 welcomed Indigenous storyteller Dallas Yellowfly and his performance “Qwalena” to the theatre in the Beedie Fine Arts Centre. The piece first depicted a dramatic representation of a “Wild Woman Who Steals Children.” Yellowfly used multimedia elements of video and sound that filled the theatre with a dynamic atmosphere, followed by a presentation on the intergenerational impact of residential schools on Indigenous people. Grade 8 students had a chance to ask questions and explore the topic in depth.
