Madeline Terbasket is a Syilx, Ho-Chunk, Anishinaabe performing artist that explores themes of cultural identity and mental health in her work. Madeline began making films as a teenager in her home territory of the Similkameen Valley in the South Okanagan. She attended six summer sessions at the Gulf Island Film and Television School. Madeline was in the Acting for Stage and Screen program at Capilano University. She discovered a passion for clowning and stand-up and expresses her comedy by telling traditional Okanagan coyote stories. In 2017, Madeline was in šxʷʔam̓ət (home) with Theatre for Living, directed by David Diamond. In 2018, they toured BC and Alberta with the production. Recently, she was awarded a STORYHIVE Indigenous Storyteller Edition grant to make her film Q’sapi Times. Madeline is reconciling through her comedy, healing our colonial history through play and laughter.
