Story Bundles is a series of six events held in conjunction with the exhibition Storied Objects: Métis Art in Relation. Produced by The Crossing Theatre Company, this series highlights the various ways Metis stories are shared. Participate and learn with Metis community members through visiting, humour, singing, dancing, fiddle music and sharing food. Each Story Bundle event will be accompanied by Métis fiddle player Tristen Durocher to showcase the storytelling nature of fiddle music.

About the Artist

She moved backed to Saskatchewan (Gabriel’s Crossing, Batoche) with her family in 1980. Fischer graduated from the University of Saskatchewan and retired from Federal Service in 2019.
