7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Gisele Maria Martin is a citizen of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.  She celebrates her heritage as a Nuu-chah-nulth language activist, a cultural educator, a naturalist, a wilderness guide, and also as a storyteller, a singer, and a dancer.


She is part of the movement to preserve and pass on the traditional knowledge to her community and is coming from her home in Tofina to share her stories, many of which she learned from her father. 


To further enhance your evening, the McMillan Arts Centre will be featuring First Nations representational art in the Concert Gallery.  As well as enjoying this storytelling event, you will also have the opportunity to view exceptional art by André Prévost, "Journeying with the Totems" before the performance and during the break.


This storytelling concert is part of the Tales for the Telling, Stories for Adults, series at the McMillan Arts Centre.
