Pauline Johnson was a trailblazing heroine, proud Mohawk poet and performer during the late 1800s. The daughter of a respected Six Nations Mohawk Chief, and an English mother, Pauline embraced her heritage and fiercely challenged the stereotypes of women and First Nations Peoples. Her powerful story is brought to life in Paddle Song, a one-woman musical theatre performance by Cheri Maracle, that captures the heart and journey of young Pauline.
“… filled with beautiful music and movement…the story reveals itself most compellingly through the dramatic performance…” -Marion Devries, Artistic Director, The Blythe Festival
