Raven Mother is the Dancers of Damelahamid’s newly choreographed dance work in honour of late Elder Margaret Harris (1931 – 2020). Raven Mother illustrates the vast impact Elder Harris had on the revitalization of Indigenous dance along the Northwest Coast. This work illuminates the profound leadership of our mothers, their essential contribution in this resurgence, and the force and transformation of this awakening.

This is the Dancers of Damelahamid’s most ambitious production and will be the culmination of generations of artistic and cultural work.  Movement, song, regalia, sculpture, and design, are interwoven with an embodied narrative that speaks to our current realities, drawing from a rich lineage of teachings and insights. Raven Mother is a tangible remembrance of a woman’s spirit, marking the shift between generations that has sparked a new role for our daughters as the force to hold their grandmother’s vision.
