sxw?amet means home in Hnqminm, a Coast Salish dialect. A pronunciation guide is below. This word has so many different meanings to all of us who are living on this land.
Conversations have been bubbling across the country about this word Reconciliation and what it really means. With the Canada 150 anniversary this past year, and with the closure of the Truth and Reconciliation offices in 2015, there are many questions about what these policies, proclamations, and apologies mean to all of us who call this place home.
What does Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people look and feel like? How does this idea of Reconciliation translate into our day to day human relationships?
This audience interactive play puts real, tough, current issues on the stage about the blockages we all face moving towards Reconciliation. It asks the What now? question in regards to Reconciliation, and compels audiences to think about Reconciliation not as a thing of the past, but something that permeates many aspects of all of our lives.
Created and performed by a courageous mixed Indigenous and non-Indigenous cast and production team, xamt (home) weaves together stories based on real life and challenges us to make reconciliation true and honourable. xamt (home) invites audiences to try to offer solutions to the real-life problems being presented on the stage.
