There was a time not too long ago when the drum could only be heard in the distance. The people knew it was out there somewhere…but where? And who were those people banging on the drums - Indians perhaps? What did it mean?

In February 2010, Debajehmujig was commissioned by the Department of Lands and Natural Resources in Wikwemikong to write and perform a custom show about land use. The play entitled “Re:Conncect” was conceptualized with the knowledge that our ways of using the land and taking care of the land are somewhat skewed. We’ve created an imbalance from the land that we once lived off because of our “drive-thru” lifestyles.
