Interactive Storytelling with Christie-Lee

Saturday August 20th at 3pm

Join Vancouver’s first local Indigenous Poet Laureate Miss Christie Lee in a group storytelling session. Christie-Lee’s roots in rap and participation in the current Yellowhouse exhibition “The Water We Call Home” will ground the workshop in the people and places of Galiano and the themes of Active / Passive.

From “The Water We Call Home” (Rosemary Georgeson):
I spent years looking to find out what happened to the part of our family that was rarely spoken of in front of us “kids”. What happened to them and where they went. With little success as an Indigenous woman things were closed to me. When I met Jessica in 2010 and we started talking about toin Vancouver’s first local Indigenous Poet Laureate Miss Christie Lee in a group storytelling session.

With little success as an Indigenous woman things were closed to me. When I met Jessica in 2010 and we started talking about things it renewed hope that they were still out there, that there was still family left as I had been told there wasn’t, that they all died.
It is through this help and support that we were able to look at the historical trauma that separated our family for over 125 years and help bring this story to life and to share it with you through this exhibition.
As an artist this is the way I know how to share a story. And the story is so large that I couldn’t see it as a performance. To bring the whole story to light we needed to reach out, start to bring family back together, and share our stories about the water we call home. That is how we came to be siyēye nii ‘u tthu sut’ku’luts | siyēye tun’i ‘utl sqwun’u –the circle of women who created this exhibition. The story is bigger than just me – it is part of history, our history that we all carry.
