Saltwater Hank

A true musical craftsman, Tsimshian folk artist Saltwater Hank honours the historical tales of ordinary folks with extraordinary will in a way that tugs on your heartstrings and gets your toes tapping. Born in Prince Rupert, BC and a member of the Gitga’at community, Saltwater Hank resurrects stories of the land, loss and absurd circumstance and shines them through a sepia lens.



Savage Production Society

Savage Society was created in 2004 as a vehicle through which its members could produce their own stories as practising Indigenous Theatre and Film Artists. Originally, an ad-hoc organization, Savage Society was incorporated in 2013. Artistic Director Kevin Loring is a member of the Nlaka’pamux Nation from the Lytton First Nation in British Columbia. In 2017 he became the first Artistic Director of Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre of Canada.
