Ajijaak on Turtle Island - IBEX Puppetry

Carina is Company Manager on the 2019 tour of Ajijaak on Turtle Island with Heather Henson’s company, IBEX Puppetry.

Ajijaak opened the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, then traveled to Baraboo Wisconsin, Providence Rhode Island and will finish with a season at the New Victory Theater on 42nd street in New York.

Ajijaak on Turtle Island tells the story of Ajijaak, a young whooping crane. Separated from her family in a Tar Sands fire caused by the monstrous Mishibizhiw, Ajijaak must make her first migration from Wood Buffalo, Canada, down to the Gulf Coast on her own, finding her voice and a family through the interconnectedness of all of creation.

Ajijaak’s story puts forward visions from indigenous communities to reach the next generation of storytellers and change-makers. All of our environment is interconnected. Life’s energy burbles throughout all aspects of our world. Ajijaak on Turtle Island brings community together through puppetry, traditional dances, animations, and kites and reveals the symbiotic relationship between cranes and Native American/Indigenous people, inspiring the next generation of eco-champions.
