Come celebrate the launch of Indigenous Theatre's first season! Our story begins with an all-Indigenous takeover of the National Arts Centre's performance and public spaces on unceded Algonquin Anishinaabeg territory!

In ceremony with Elders from Kitigan Zibi, the name Mòshkamo was gifted to us in honour of the work we are presenting. Mòshkamo embodies the art of appearing out of water and invites others to bear witness to its arrival.

With a season focused on themes of cultural reclamation, Indigenous women's resilience and theatre as artistic resurgence, we proudly claim space at the NAC with contemporary, traditional and culturally-specific Indigenous activities and events. Including:

Grand Entry
Indigenous Culinary Experience
Artist Talks
Free Family Cultural Activities
Arts Workshops
Free Public Performances
Indigenous Music Showcases
Visual Arts Exhibits
VR Experience

Embark on our shared journey. Join us for two weeks of immersion in Indigenous arts and community at Mòshkamo: Indigenous Arts Rising.
