Delve into the past to explore history that sheds light on the present. Jocelyn Sioui will reveal the history of Wenta'yeh'Tichion (the Morning Star) on the mountain of the island of Tiohtia:ke (Montréal).

“Stories that are not told disappear, but not without leaving a trace.” - Jocelyn Sioui

A lecture and discussion held as part of the 4th edition of the Festival d'Histoire de Montréal.

Jocelyn Sioui – Multidisciplinary Wendat artist

This author-designer-performer’s literary and theatrical works have been met with great success throughout Canada and in France: Mononk Jules shines a light on the story of Jules Siou, a forgotten pioneer of Indigenous claims, while Frétillant et agile is a tale that brings to life the story of Auhaïtsic, an improbable Wendat hero. These works are currently on tour in Canada.

Jocelyn’s work—blending influences, tinged with humour and fantasy, and light-hearted in appearance only—questions his origins and our collective memory, attempting to reassemble the pieces of a history that has been obscured.
