Martial arts on a mission: The Okichitaw Project - TheBulletin.ca

thebulletin.ca [cached]

The Canadian Aboriginal martial arts system of Okichitaw (pronounced Oh-key-chee-tah) was developed and established in the early 1990s by George Lépine, a professional martial artist living in Toronto.
The practice is based on different indigenous fighting techniques and aims to "empower the student as a Warrior of Peace. Lépine has intimate ties to its origins. Lépine says indigenous activities such as Okichitaw were often done "underground" for fear of being prosecuted. Fast-forward to today, where Lépine has been teaching the program at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto. Located just north of Bloor and Spadina, the centre has been offering training in martial arts since the 1990s and has had over 1500 people participate in Okichitaw. Lépine is determined to ensure that practice is available and remembered for ages to come. "It's incredible where Okichitaw has come now ... the journey's been incredible. But it gets to the point where as you get older, you're going, 'Well where is this captured?' We need to document it." In comes Meegwun Fairbrother. Fairbrother, a Canadian actor and filmmaker, was taught by Lépine, and wants to bring the practice back home. Fairbrother and Lépine have teamed up to carry out what they're calling "The Okichitaw Project". The first phase involves creating an official video series of the Okichitaw system. Once complete, the duo intends to travel to ten First Nations communities across Ontario to hold workshops while promoting the video series, both resources to be offered for free. The last stage of the project would have a select few from the communities they've visited travel to Toronto to undergo intensive training, with the objective being that they're confident enough to starting teaching Okichitaw to others once they return home. Lépine and Fairbrother hope that enough funding is raised through government grants and public donations to get the project off the ground this summer.
