Champions of Change

November 18, 2015 | Category: What's New


On November 4, 2015, Six Nations Polytechnic celebrated the “Champions for Change” during their Indigenous Education Conference. It is a great honour for Artistic Director Santee Smith to be recognized as a Eihwaedei Yerihwayente:ri (Community Scholar) alongside her father Steve Smith. Six Nations Community Scholars also included: Elizabeth Doxtator, Michael Doxtator, Ga:gwihsohk Tracey Deer, Roronhiakehte Elijah Deer. Six Nations Eihwanosda:s Yerihwanonstats (Indigenous Knowledge Guardians) honoured included Betty Henry, Amos Key Jr., Elva Jamieson, Art Johnson, and Gloria Sky.

Kaha:wi Dance Theatre is grateful for the support we receive from friends, family, community and sponsors. It is an honour to be recognized by arts colleagues in Ontario and also by our home community of Six Nations of the Grand River. As KDT nears the end of our 10th Anniversary year, we look forward to a bright future of touring and community engagement.

Nia:wen kowa!

“Ontario Contact is pleased to be presenting Artist of the Year to one of Canada’s leading contemporary dance companies – Kaha:wi Dance. Under Artistic Director Santee Smith, the company has an abundance of innovative programming for presenters to consider. As a well-organized touring company it has made the life of the presenter easier. And while they stay  true to their core values and vision they keep the audience in mind as an integral part of the performance. ” – Ontario Contact
