The groundbreaking Pawâkan Macbeth is Indigenous playwright, Reneltta Arluk’s reimagining of Shakespeare’s darkest play into Cree history, legend and cosmology. Set in Plains Cree territory in the 1870s, harsh environments brought immense fear, starvation, and uncertainty together to awaken the darkest of Cree spirits, the Witiko – an evil being with an insatiable appetite for human flesh.
