Don Burnstick

Don, Burnstick

Don is a Cree from the Alexander First Nation located outside of Edmonton. The youngest of 15 children, coupled with the fact of growing up on the reserve, taught Don a variety of means of defending himself, not the least of which became his use of humour. Don has been involved within the healing/personal wellness movement for the past 17 years and has utilized humour and performance to provide a holistic approach to healing. Don wrote and performs the one-man play I Am Alcohol - Healing the Wounded Warrior. His highly acclaimed comedy show You Might be a Redskin – Healing Through Native Humour is a comedic performance that humorously portrays First Nations people, their habits, likes and dislikes.
