Watch history come to life! A site-specific multi-disciplinary performance, The Honouring pays homage to First Nations warriors of the War of 1812, featuring Onkwehonwe families who sacrificed to protect Haudenosaunee sovereignty, culture and land.
Audiences have the opportunity to understand the complexity of the War of 1812 through the experiential lens of First Nations, offering a human face to our history. All First Nations took part in the War of 1812 as sovereign Nation allies to Britain. The Honouring pays homage to their personal sacrifices and belief in what was the best for their family, community and future generations.
The Honouring is commissioned by the City of Toronto, Museum Services as part of the Indigenous Arts Festival at Fort York, Woodland Cultural Centre Creation Residency and Niagara 1812 Bicentennial Legacy Council.
