Native Earth Performing Arts is Canada’s oldest professional Indigenous performing arts company. Currently in our 39th year, we are dedicated to developing, producing and presenting professional artistic expressions of the Indigenous experience in Canada.
Through stage productions (theatre, dance and multi-disciplinary art), new script development, apprenticeships and internships, Native Earth seeks to fulfill a community of artistic visions. It is a vision that is inclusive and reflective of the artistic directions of members of the Indigenous community who actively participate in the arts.
Strength of Character
In service of our mandate and mission, the company strives to operate according to 7 traditional principles which inform decisions in all undertakings. It is our belief that these tenets not only honour Indigenous values, but are universal to all cultures in various manifestations. We acknowledge that these are subjective values, and that each individual has an interpretation of them.
