Salt Baby

This play by Falen Johnson is the story of one young woman's struggle to find her place within society and her culture.

Growing up on the Six Nations native reserve, Salt Baby never quite fit in, as a "white" looking "Indian" — fair skin and curly hair made her more of a Shirley Temple type than a Pocahontas type. Salt Baby navigates the native reserve and the city while explaining herself, as well as her blood quantrum, to the world and to "Alligator" — "It's always different for Indians." (J. Gordon Shillingford)
