Kehewin Native Dance Theatre

Founded in 1991 by Melvin and Rosa John, Kehewin is Native Theatre, Dance and Storytelling. It is community workshops, interactive performances and classroom visits.
Every Summer Kehewin provides theatre and dance training for Native youth during the Summer Training Program in the Kehewin studios on the Kehewin First Nation. We also provide Native Studies, Craft, Dance and Theatre workshops to interested communities and schools.
Training has become an integral part of Kehewin annual operations. Kehewin has developed its own training process, which we have named NAH (this means ‘here’ or ’take this’ in several Native languages). This process is community oriented and culturally based. We have also developed a community workshop manual that is now used throughout Canada
