TREATY: A Reconciliation Revelry, a concert event produced and directed by Tim Johnson and Josh Miller is slated to be performed at the Sanderson Centre in Brantford, Ont., on Mar. 30 at 7 p.m.
“The concert takes viewers on a journey of experiences that lead Canadians through stories of encounter and conflict to resolution, landing on uplifting notes of recognition, understanding, and respect,” said a press release.
The stories and messages in Johnson’s (RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked The World) and Miller’s concert are conveyed through video, narrative and of course, music. They are situated in the realm of contemporary issues and events but provide audiences with historical context for understanding Indigenous experiences and Indigenous realities.
“Brief film segments featuring Indigenous and Canadian leaders in civil society, education, culture and the arts speak to the themes identified by a list of definitions of select words, thereby building a story that seeks to pave the way forward for Truth and Reconciliation,” said the release.
An ensemble of renowned and award-winning Indigenous and allied musicians will play popular songs that are curated to inform and entertain.
“Through this engaging concert, TREATY: A Reconciliation Revelry seeks to focus public attention on Indigenous contributions to Canada and their struggle to have appropriate acknowledgement embedded within the conscience of the country,” said the release.
