The Siyotanka Legend
The Siyotanka Story


"Siyotanka is amazing. It allows the audience to become emotionally involved in the life and spirit of the characters. It is a beautiful tale told with the right amount of mystery, authenticity and humor. The story unfolds in such a way that one can't tell what will happen next, then unexpectedly, it blooms into a flower. People really must see it, feel it and taste it to appreciate Siyotanka's depth and power.  This show said everything I would want to say if I had a venue to do so. Everybody who has the opportunity to be touched by this story will feel deeply and have their soul replenished. Please keep this story going, it needs to be told."
