This Week's Featured Article
Debajehmujig Storytellers or Debaj as it is affectionately known is an Aboriginal Theatre company based on the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. Established in 1984 by Dr. Shirley Cheechoo as a way for Aboriginal youth to see their own lives and their own stories reflected on stage in a way that was not accessible in mainstream theatre Canada. Over their thirty-year history, Debaj has produced more than 50 (ab)original creations and has contributed to the development and growth of many Aboriginal Actors, Directors, and Playwrights. They have also participated in many intercultural collaborations in Canada and abroad, bringing their unique Anishanaabek world view to global audiences. Their current staff include Artistic Director Joe Osawabine and Artistic Producer Ron Berti. In 2009, Debajehmujig opened their Creation Centre in Manitowaning, Ontario.
