About the Event

Narrated through the enchanting voices of Natalya Gennadi, soprano, and Kristine Dandavino, mezzo, accompanied by piano (Jo Greenaway) and violin (Oleksandra Fedyshyn), the story unfolds in the early 20th century. Faced with hardships and an unwelcome presence in Canada, Ukrainian newcomers find belonging in the kindness of Indigenous women. From shared meals to Khustka shawls – the kinship between these women opens the way for an enduring mutual cultural appreciation.
