About MIIGIS: Underwater Panther
The Miigis saga reveals the power of nature and Indigenous prophecy through contemporary Indigenous dance, theatrical innovation, and a fusion of athleticism, music, and film.
Miigis: Underwater Panther is about our journey from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes as we explore catalysts for movement, water trade routes, Anishinaabe archetypes, and mystery beings on our journey from salt to fresh water.

Since its creation in 2000, Red Sky’s vision is to lead in the creation, elevation, and evolution of contemporary Indigenous performance and make a significant contribution to the artistic and cultural vibrancy of Canada and the world.

Her vision is dedicated to expanding and elevating the ecology of contemporary performance informed by Indigenous worldview and culture.

At the same time, they remain deeply rooted and invested on a grassroots level and regularly perform in urban, rural, and reserve communities across Turtle Island.
