On The Diviners: Language Revitalization

PEER INTO THE PLAYBILL

ON THE DIVINERS: LANGUAGE REVITALIZATION

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, September 12, 2024
10:30 a.m. to noon

Language flows like a river in our new adaptation of The Diviners. Michif, the language of the Métis, features prominently in the script and is a key aspect of Métis identity. In this discussion, we talk with Elder Lorraine Coutu-Lavallee and co-directors of The Diviners, Krista Jackson and Genevieve Pelletier about how the preservation of language allows us to preserve history and culture.
