Everyday Sunday, the comeback team gathers at Regina Food Bank to cook 200-300 meals. These meals are made up of Soup and Bannock and handed out on location in the downtown Regina area. Serving 100 plus people on site and the remainder meals are disturbed throughout the community fridges. This program is run by our amazing team of volunteers.
The Comeback Society and the Mackenzie Art Gallery in partnership, created a 3-day workshop for 15 Indigenous Students in Regina who will be participating this workshop. They have the opportunity to engage with leading Blackfoot contemporary artist, Faye Heavyshield (Blood, Blackfoot Confederacy) and Swampy Cree curator Felicia Gay (Opaskwayak Cree Nation). Faye is an Internationally recognized artist who has been practicing her art for 30 plus years nationally and internationally. The Mackenzie Art Gallery will showcase an important retrospective for HeavyShield curated by Gay called, I eat a heart and drink some tea: The Work of Faye HeavyShield, which opens on October 28th, 2022.
The Comeback Society offers online beading workshop that happens on a weekly basis. These beading nights offer a safe space, emotional security and the ability to create community and connect with a variety of Indigenous Kin from across the Nation. The Comeback sends out pre-packaged beading kits to the participants and together they share the knowledge of traditional beading and learn together.
The Comeback Society originally was a podcast. The podcast is focused on amplifying Indigenous voices, sharing stories of resilience and building connections. Throughout the release of the weekly episodes the sisters found passion in creating community, leading to the founding of the non-profit.
The Comeback Society offers to share space with other agencies in the creation of beautiful skirts/shirts while learning the history of Indigenous Culture and the importance of ceremonial clothing. Throughout the workshop our goal is to build a kinship relationship with everyone in the space, to learn and respect the teachings of the skirt & shirt.
