Elapultiek / We Are Looking Towards by Shalan Joudry, from the traditional district of Kespukwitk and of both Mi’kmaw and European ancestry, is a play first produced by Two Planks and a Passion Theatre and opened at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Canning, Nova Scotia, Mi’kma’ki. The two main characters are Natawintoq (Nat) an early twenties Mi’kmaw drum singer and Bill, a mid fifties, Euro-Nova Scotian biologist. Through conversations while counting chimney swifts and a community meeting, Nat and Bill experience their cultural differences and accommodation of each other’s perspectives and world views. This is also a discussion about stories and language. There is a glossary and additional notes on Kaktukopnji’jk (Chimney Swifts), Etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing) and The Marshall’s Journey to Find Muin’s Story all which are part of Elapultiek.
