De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre Group (www.debaj.ca) Based in Wikwemikong, De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre Group – known to friends and patrons as simply “Debaj” is Canada’s oldest touring Aboriginal theatre company. Founded in 1984 by Sundance Institute alumnus and award-winning filmmaker Shirley Cheechoo, De-ba-jeh-mu-jig which means “storytellers” has provided a forum for storytelling from an Aboriginal perspective. Over the years, Debaj has cultivated a number of emerging Aboriginal playwrights, such as Tomson Highway and Drew Hayden Taylor, and provided a stage with which to tell their stories – stories that were performed by Aboriginal youth for Aboriginal youth.Each summer Debaj offers a mainstage production at the historic Mission Ruins in Wikwemikong from late July through mid-August. De-ba-jeh-mu-jig has opened their Summer Matinee Production of The Descending Star and Thunderers and Water Monsters at the Debajehmujig Creation Centre in Manitowaning at 2:00 p.m. Admission: $20 Adults $15 Students/Elders $10 Youth 9 – 12 years $ 5 Children 8 and under
