Dish - Talking Stick Festival
Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish

“When you take something from the earth, you must give something back.”

Indigenous storytellers spin a tale from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets about Th’owxiya, an old and powerful spirit that has developed a taste for children. When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse named Kw’atel stealing a piece of cheese from her mouth, she demands he finds two child spirits for her to eat – or else she will eat Kw’atel’s whole family. With the help of the Sqeweqs (Raven), two Spa:th (bears), and Sasq’ets (sasquatch), Kw’at’el sets forth on an intense journey for knowledge and forgiveness. 

Suitable for ages 4+ and families.

By Axis Theatre. Written by Joseph A. Dandurand.
