When twin White Bisons are born to a First Nation ranch, an ambitious blog reporter posts it and the story goes viral. Is this a miracle in the spiritual life of a Saskatchewan First Nation or a one in a billion scientific event? Culture, science and politics collide as the world descends on the herd to witness the sacred prophecy of the White Bison while one Indigenous scientist fights to keep her ethics intact and her herd alive.

Kenneth T. Williams is a Cree playwright from the Gordon First Nation, Saskatchewan in what is known as Treaty 4 territory. He became the first Indigenous person to earn an M.F.A. in playwriting from the University of Alberta in 1992. Since 2017, Williams has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Drama at the University of Alberta.

The Herd is a new play originally programmed as part of Tarragon’s 2020/21 live season and was set to open in Februay 2021.
