The Seven Fires Prophecy is an ancient Ojibwe story said to have foretold the arrival of Europeans in North America, and the devastating consequences on their community. Each of the first prefigures a particular era of time, and warns or prepares the people for its defining challences. INAATE/SE/ re-imagines this prophecy and explores how it resonates across the gernations in the indigenous Anishinaabe-Ojibwe community of Sault Ste. Marie, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Some believe the current generation to be emerging as the seventh fire generation. The seventh fire envisioned a re-tracing of steps, a return to roots, and a spiritual rebirth of a people. As INAATE/SE/ fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity, it simultaneously explores and re-imagines the past and the future of the Ojibwe people.
