Description: As part of the Stories and Sovereignty: Winter Tales of Water and Love speaker series, playwright Drew Hayden Taylor and wild rice activist James Whetung will join in conversation about the work that Whetung does in restoring wild rice plants to the lakes of Northern Ontario and about the creation of the play Cottagers and Indians. Now playing at Tarragon Theatre the piece is a battle royal between a native farmer and a white cottager, whose increasingly bitter dispute becomes a microcosm for reconciliation.
