An actor, playwright and crafter of contemporary tales for adults, Falen is Mohawk and Tuscarora originally from Six Nations. In contrast to traditional Haudenosaunee stories, Falen’s thought-provoking expressions are woven from her experiences living in Six Nations and Toronto. Sometimes comedic, sometimes difficult, her stories take stock of what it truly means to be Indigenous, in both historical and today’s context. Her work explores subjects ranging from dating outside color lines, land disposition, blood quantum, to stereotypes. A graduate of George Brown Theatre School, her credits include: Salt Baby, The Only Good Indian with Turtle Gals Performance Ensemble, The Triple Truth, Savage, Strong Medicine, Death of a Chief, A Very Polite Genocide, and Tombs of the Vanishing Indian. Falen has also been featured on The Moth Radio Hour. This event is free with museum admission.
