How Okotoks Is The Rock Under A New Play

Daybreak Alberta

A new play from the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society is called "Okotoks" and it tells the story of Holy Bear Woman. She was a young Blackfoot girl, just 12 years old, who survived the Baker massacre of 1870 where almost 300 elders, women and children were killed. Making Treaty 7 calls the show a story of survival and resilience and will be staging it on February 26th and 27th, at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Justin Many Fingers, Artistic Director of Making Treaty 7 and director of "Okotoks" sat down with Russell Bowers to discuss the very personal nature of this show for him.
