Puppetry: Culturally Responsive Performative Art
Puppetry has the power to transcend humanity and investigate real-life topics in graceful and thoughtful ways. Inspired by IBEX Puppetry's Ajijaak on Turtle Island, which uses puppetry to weave Ojibwe, Lakota and Cherokee legends into a tale of adventure, hardship and self-discovery, this workshop explores puppetry like you've never seen it before!

Learn puppetry and storytelling techniques that will allow you to immerse your classroom in new, colorful worlds that celebrate individual cultural identities. This workshop seamlessly integrates puppetry, physical movement and cultural stories to give you the tools to take puppetry to a whole new level in your classroom by creating captivating, innovative, culturally responsive works of art!
