Exploring the Potential of Norris Arm Native Living History Theatre


To preserve and interpret our cultural history through theatre/living re-enactment.

Previous archaeological digs have revealed the presence of Aboriginal cultures from the Maritime Archaic to the present. Evidence shows that the Norris Arm area was probably the major salmon processing site in Central Newfoundland and possibly the whole Island. These were warm weather gatherers who frequented the site on an annual basis to fish the waters of Rattling Brook for salmon, as well as hunt the abundant supply of animals that frequented the forest. This story needs to be preserved as well as presented to the public in a theatre setting.

Roles for Memorial University:
Research and develop a plan to produce and present this information to the public through theatre/living re-enactment.
