Five Treaty Six to Represent at CFSW 2018
One community, two parents, three indigenous peoples, four prairie born, and five powerful poets. We are the five Treaty six.
This year’s Saskatoon Slam Team is a powerhouse of talent, passion and words! Kevin Wesaquate (poetik with a silent K), Elise Pallagi, Janelle Pewapsconias (ecoaborijanelle), Shaw Joseph (Overflo) and Victoria Rideout are bringing a glorious diversity of life experiences, poetry and performance styles that will represent Saskatoon and Tonight It’s Poetry well at this year’s Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Guelph, ON from October 28 to November 4. Our spoken word community is proud to be sending them to this national competition! The festival is not just a competition but an educational and social conference, too. These poets will have many opportunities to meet and learn from some of the most accomplished spoken word artists in the country. They’ll also have a great time just soaking up the creativity and inspiration of being with other poets. We wish them well and know that they’ll return inspired and ready to bring new words to our stage!
