Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish provides great famíy entertainment

Six storytellers from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets spin the tale of Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish, a well-known tale told across Indigenous communities in northwestern Canada. The story has shades of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale and the First Nations story of The Wild Woman of the Woods. Watch this classic myth come to life through mask and music while learning the traditions and stories of BC’s First Nations.

Check out the following video, produced with the Squamish-Líl̓wat Culture Centre, explaining about the Líl̓waft and Squamish versions of this popular story. The video features SLCC workers, Cultural Leader Sik Sik Josh Anderson and Junior Curator Mix̲alhítsa7-Alison Pascal.
