Written in 1991, Almighty Voice and His Wife tells the story of a Cree man, jailed for killing a cow without a license for his wedding feast. Upon threat of hanging, Almighty Voice escaped, leading to a man hunt that lasted over a year. In the process, Almighty Voice became a martyr and a legend.
Part love story, part minstrel show, Almighty Voice and His Wife is by turns heartwarming, shocking, hilarious, challenging and hopeful. Native Earth Performing Arts have been touring their revival nationally and internationally since 2009, garnering rave reviews.
