Prairie Spirit Youth Theatre Program was a six-month intensive training and employment program that included a cultural component, life skills training, and theatre development through voice, movement, writing and acting. This was the first component of a work preparation program offered through Regina-based Prairie Spirit Connections to underemployed young adults. Artists Erroll Kinistino (Ochapowace First Nation) and Wolframio Sinue (Ecuador), Mark Dieter, (Lebret) and Birtha Twin (Winnipeg) led the collaborative creative process.
The group collaboratively wrote a play with Mark Dieter, entitled Savage Words and Savage Smiles. This production toured Southern Saskatchewan to the youth's home reserve communities, Saskatoon and Regina as a way for them to "give back" to their communities and share their voices as role models. On the road, the young people were well received by their communities as role models as they performed and provided technical crew support.
