Opening the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, Ajijaak on Turtle Island is co-directed by Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe and Heather Henson, the daughter of legendary puppeteer Jim Henson. The puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, indigenous songs and dances, and video projections create a transformative experience that honors contemporary Native American cultures and illustrates the harmonious relationships between humans, animals, and the environment.
