A new date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.

An evening of Métis beauty, featuring the painted drums of Jaime Morse and the dancing of Prairie Fire. Hear about the tradition behind the drums, take in an installation of hung mini-drums, and meet the artists over a cup of cedar tea and a taste of bannock. 

Jaime Morse (formerly Koebel) is Nehiyaw/Michif (Cree/Métis) from Lac La Biche, AB and has lived in Ottawa since 2000. She is an Indigenous arts activator, activating stories and teachings of social, political, and cultural matters through Indigenous arts and culture.

As an artist her practice includes carrying on traditions of fish scale art, using porcupine quills/hair and caribou/moose hair. Jaime also practices Métis beadwork which includes land mapping and storytelling and her drawings reflect floral imagery based on traditional Indigenous knowledge.

As the founder of “Indigenous Walks,” a walking tour through downtown Ottawa exploring landscape, architecture, art and monuments through an Indigenous perspective, Jaime helps to connect others to history and culture, inspiring and empowering people through art, dance, education, and traditional practices.

Prairie Fire is a fun family dance group that shares their Métis and First Nation’s heritage with audience members through fiddle music with Pow Wow and Celtic-style dancing.
