    SALT BABY: ‘Cause when i walk through the city no one knows that I am, that I am Indian and that’s hard. It makes me wonder why I look the way I do. You know kinda white.

    DAD: ‘Cause you are kinda white.

    SALT BABY: But how white? What else is in here? I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. What do you know about our family history?

    Salt Baby was first presented at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto in 2009.
