We are Mi’kmaq Legends, Atlantic Canada’s premier Indigenous theatre group, based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Our company began in 2009 with the creation of a piece based on eight Mi’kmaq legends which were turned into a script by director Cathy Elliot. Since then our group has continued to grow and evolve with every new show we present.
We are proud to offer three distinct programs for different audiences in search of authentic Mi’kmaq Culture: Mi’kmaq Legends, Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors and Next Gen Legends. We can provide a wide range of artistic, theatrical and Cultural talent for events such as festivals, workshops, presentations, training and schools. We offer beautiful opening and closing for events including prayer, smudging ceremonies, drumming, singing and dancing. We also provide Traditional Cultural teachings on medicines, the seven sacred teachings, reconciliation and artisans in our Indigenous Community. Join us to learn Mi’kmaq songs, drumming and dances. Book time with our storytellers and learn valuable lessons from our past in a beautiful peaceful way from the stories that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Our performers stage two-hour choreographed conference-level performances. We offer knowledgeable panellists for sessions with Q&As about Indigenous Culture. We shine at school presentations for any age, and inclusive theatre workshops for all who want to learn and can enhance any music or dance curriculum.
