Where Have All The Buffalo Gone?

Where Have All The Buffalo Gone? follows two Métis souls, Marie and Jean, through four love stories in four distinct periods of their history. We bear witness to the emergence of the Métis nations across the plains, the robust colonization that arises from the fur trade, the disappearance of the buffalo and the political uprising of the Métis Association of Alberta. The story begins during creation amongst the stars and ends in present day.  Where Have All The Buffalo Gone? specifically shares the Callihoo family’s stories, incorporating fiddle music, jigging and a life size buffalo puppet.  Inspired by true historical events of the Métis people of Canada, this original play for young audiences explores the love, the loss and the fight of Treaty 6’s Métis people – and their love and kinship to the buffalo. In the age of “looking down,” Axis Theatre draws young eyes up to engage them in interactive experiences that educate, inspire, and transform.
