Kim Senklip Harvey made the decision to jump from performing to writing after becoming exhausted with how Indigenous women were being portrayed onstage.

“If you don’t see a person in our community for everything that they are, it’s hard to see the humanity. It’s hard to see where you relate,” she said.

Harvey’s scriptwriting debut is the show Kamloopa, named after the huge powwow of the same name that takes place in B.C. near Kamloops. The show about two sisters travelling to powwow and their personal journeys of self-discovery is travelling to Persephone Theatre this October.
