Cree-Dene-Métis spoken word poet, Zoey Roy, composer/arranger Juliet Palmer, and producer Omar Ballantyne form a powerhouse collaborationwith the RSO to create poetry, music, and accompanying teaching materials reflecting on the prairie provinces, history, identity, and Indigenous voices.

Zoey Roy’s explains that:

Enough is Enough unravels what we think we know about Indigenous people in the context of Canada and rebuild a collective understanding of how we can learn from Indigenous knowledge and spirituality to make our home in Canada better for everyone. Inspired by my own pursuit of self-love, healing, and joy. The following lessons are steppingstones – a pathway for engaging the whole human self in learning and growing. Along my journey, I learned, you can’t think your way out of a broken heart. I want people to know that they are enough, to feel that they are enough, and to know that all people, animals, plants, minerals, and emotions all have a place in this world just like you. They are all enough too. Our journey is not theirs, so our judgements have no place in their journey. I want this unit to inspire compassion, will, solidarity and love.

Enough is Enough is a powerful 30-minute performance tailored to Saskatchewan Ministry of Education learning outcomes in Social Studies, Music, and English Language Arts for grades 9-12.
