The Aunties is an invitation to come together to honor the women that shape, heal, and uphold Indigenous communities —the aunties—through an evening of contemporary storytelling, shared live from the stage alongside familial and archival photographs, and works of legacy. The Aunties in Seattle is one installment in a series of events across Turtle Island (North America), featuring stories by Indigenous women from the local regions who have dedicated their work to uplifting their communities.

Storytelling from the live performances will be preserved on film to become the heart of a narrative-driven documentary series that capture the artistic, cultural, and visual integrity of the places and people from which auntie stories emerge. The documentary films are intended as a cultural resource for the benefit of future generations.

The Aunties live performance and film series creates a dedicated space for Indigenous storytelling tradition. Indigenous storytelling spans purpose, complexity and tradition. As part of the series, storytelling is honored as a living art form that continuously shapes identity, facilitates healing, and builds solidarity across and within communities.

We gather to honor the contributions and enduring legacy of our aunties, whose stories inspire new narratives and guide new generations of leaders. In Seattle, we come together in community to reflect on our collective history to nurture hope for a brighter future.
