Celebrating Native Sign Language; International Week of Deaf People 19-25 September and International Day of Sign Languages 23 September 2022

CHANGER: A HAND TELLING is an innovative Deaf-centric and Native-centric filmed performance with Deaf Native storytellers performing the Coast Salish myth of CHANGER in Native and artistic sign language and the next evolution of an original play by Fern Naomi Renville (Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate) and Roger Fernandes (Lower Elwha S’Klallam, Makah). Helmed by Deaf director Howie Seago, CODA film maker Kyle Seago and Native film maker Raven Two Feathers, CHANGER: A HAND TELLING is a cinematic take on Coast Salish origin stories. Filmed on the traditional lands of the Lower Elwha s’Klallam Tribe, the 75-minute narrative follows mythic characters into a future transformed by tribes exercising sovereign treaty rights.
