Th’owxiya: the Hungry Feast Dish, by Joseph A. Dandurand
Wednesday November 9 | 1pm
Immerse yourself in the legend of the basket ogress, Th’owxiya, an old hungry spirit that inhabits a feast dish full of bountiful, delicious foods. This Kwantlen First Nations tale follows a sly Mouse (Kw’at’el) who is caught stealing cheese from this feast dish. To appease an angry Th’owxiya, Kw’at’el embarks on a journey to find two children for the ogress to eat, or else! Come enjoy the traditional Coast Salish and Sto:lo music, masks, and imagery while learning how Raven (Sqeweqs), Bear (Spa:th), and Sasquatch (Sasq’ets) trick a hungry spirit and save Kw’at’el and their family from becoming the feast! Suitable for all ages.
