I liked the way Nanabush appeared throughout, the incorporation of mythic figures like that in a modern context always appeals to me. The prophesy that seven generations after the arrival of the Europeans the Native culture would be rejuvenated is also fascinating because it is something I constantly see happening around me, and according to some we are the seventh generation, and this was worked into the play in interesting ways.

The Rez Sisters is partially inspired by Michel Tremblay 's play Les Belles-soeurs , [1] as it focuses on the hopes and dreams of a group of seven women on the Wasaychigan Hill Indian reserve. While Highway's treatment of his women characters is sympathetic and perhaps gentler than Tremblay's, their portrayal can only be described as gritty and grim realism. The Rez Sisters is the first of an unfinished cycle of seven plays the playwright refers to as his Rez Septology, which also includes 's 'flip side' play Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing , originally entitled The Rez Brothers. The play melds the sometimes dark realities of life on an Indian reserve with humour and elements of Aboriginal spirituality.
