We are heartbroken to share the news of the sudden death of Cathy Elliott. Cathy, who played the mother Rita in Children of God, was the heartbeat of the company.
Cathy was a multi-disciplined Mi’kmaq artist and a proud member of the Sipekne’katik Reserve in Nova Scotia. An actor, singer, playwright, activist, visual artist, mentor, set designer and musician, Cathy was a beautiful person – loving, nurturing, and enormously talented.
The entire Children of God and Urban Ink family send our most sincere condolences to Cathy’s family and friends. Through tears and with heavy hearts we sing Cathy home. Baamaapii ka wab migo, Cathy.
