“’Belief’ was a deep and moving highlight presented in Salamanca, Spain, at WILD 10, the 10th World Wilderness Congress. The international delegates from 65 nations were emotionally touched by Julie’s masterful storytelling and her dramatic art. The stories were poignant and memorable…the performance, enthralling. It was an evening of great enjoyment and relevance to many people, nationalities, and cultures. “ Vance Martin, President, The WILD Foundation, Co-Chair, WILD10
Beliefstars Salish actress and U of M Alum, Julie Cajune. The performance is a unique mix of Salish women’s stories, poetry, and original score performed live with musicians. The stories invite you to believe in one’s true self, to believe in magic, and to believe in love, the core of all humanity.
Julie Cajune, Salish educator, and Salish writer, poet, and playwright, Jennifer Finley, collaborated on Belief. Julie and Jennifer developed their stories in collaboration with Linda Grinde, who is director of the performance. The original music score was composed by world flutist Gary Stroutsos, Grammy-nominated pianist David Lanz, violinist Swil Kanim, and percussionist David Revelli. Powerful and imaginative melodies carry the audience on the journey through Belief. Stroutsos, Swil Kanim, and a special musical guest will be on stage with Julie for the Missoula performance
