We saw Shanawdithit, a new opera produced by Tapestry Opera and Opera on the Avalon, about the woman who was long considered the last Beothuk. She is also the main source of what little we know about the Beothuk, an indiginous people of Newfoundland who were the victims of ethnocide.
Michael and Chris were excited to see the opera and talk about it afterwards.
