Created in residency with The Shed Open Call, Makadewiiyaasikwe is sound poem of Kelsey Pyro's original music and personal stories. Meaning, "a Black woman; a woman of African descent,” in the  Ojibwe language, Makadewiiyaasikwe connects the history and healing process of Native American and African American people. 

This work premiered, live at The Shed, in June 2019.

In a dystopian nation where people are forced to assimilate, six immigrants unite in secret to spark a joyful revolution.
