For several days, the storytellers will travel the Island and meet the people and communities, to become more familiar with the way of life of the on this unique and beautiful Island.

Having left Turtle Island on May 31, 2012 The Global Savages are making their way to the Oerol Festival at Terschelling in the Netherlands. Landing in Paris – a centre for education and ideas – The Global Savages made their way through this ‘City of Light’ – so named during the Age of Enlightenment –connecting with the people on the streets and in constant search for those who will listen to their story.

Global Savages in Glasgow

From June 4th to 8th, Debajehmujig – Storytellers and The Global Savages were the guests of Glasgow Citizens’ Theatre in Glasgow Scotland.

The Global Savages: Rotterdam or Bust! 2011

In 2000 the company of artists at Debajehmujig began to explore the question, what is the future for young Aboriginal men in Canada and what is a modern expression of traditional storytelling from an Anishnabe perspective. This began a long journey that brought the company together with Traditional Odawa Elder, Eddie King from Wikwemikong and opened the pathway to the foundation teachings and traditional knowledge that would form the basis of the Eighteen thousand year history of the Anishnabe on Turtle Island.
