Taran Kootenhayoo was born on September 18, 1993, in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada and passed away at the age of 27 on December 31st, 2020 in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. He was a registered member of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation and the Denesuline First Nation. Born to Sheryl Kootenhayoo, Taran is the middle child of two siblings; His younger brother E’then Kootenhayo4, as well as older sister Cheyanna Kootenhayo known alternatively as “DJ KooKum”.3 Sheryl raised Taran as a single mother and described his upbringing as “lacking stability” which
resulted in Taran’s occasional stay with his grandmother; Agnes Gendron, with whom he had a close relationship.4 In his early childhood Taran would often perform traditional Powwow dances with his mother and sister, and at the age of 13 he developed a profound love for skateboarding.5 Taran possessed an aptitude for artistic culture, and when he wasn’t skateboarding, he would travel amongst the local Treaty 6 First Nations communities sharing short-stories in his native language Dene.6 Around the age of 15, Taran moved to Edmonton, Alberta where he attended and graduated from the Victoria School of Visual Performing Arts (2011).6 During his high school years Taran became a member of “Dream Speakers On Tour”, a 10-day program comprised of indigenous youth and mentors that focused on developing short films. Throughout its duration he worked as both writer and director, producing two short films as well as lent his performative capabilities to various other projects throughout the tour.6 After graduating from the Victoria School of Visual Performing Arts, Taran moved to Vancouver at the age of 18 to attend Capilano University where he would receive his diploma in the “Acting for Stage and Screen” program (2015).6 After Graduating from his program Taran became the director of SOAR (2013-2015), an aboriginal arts program that offered emerging aboriginal artists training in performance disciplines.6 Throughout his time as director of SOAR he wrote and co-wrote over six plays and one screenplay as well as acted in several solo shows.7 Among his many contributions to the theatrical community, Taran was also a member of the board of directors of KAYA (Knowledgeable Aboriginal Youth Association), an ensemble member of Full Circle First Nations Performance, as well as a member of Urban Ink’s productions performance group.6 In 2018 Taran starred as Niki in the feature film ‘Bella Ciao!’ starring opposite Carmen Aguirre and directed by Carolyn Combs. The film premiered at the Whistler Film Festival and received outstanding reviews, winning Taran the ‘Stars to Watch’ festival award.8 Along with this notable recognition in Whistler, Taran would receive the ‘Sam Payne’s Most Promising Newcomer’ award in 2019 at the Jessie Theatre Awards, and landed a recurring role in the animated PBS/CBC TV series Molly of Denali which won a Peabody Award.6 Taran would continue to make waves in the industry directing and writing his short film titled D.I.Y (2019). The short drama centered around skateboarder Adam (Adam George) who meets unexpected Cree stranger Joe (Joe Buffalo) and inspires him to return to his roots.5 In March of 2020, Taran’s personally written play titled White Noise was scheduled to open at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster co-produced by the Firehall arts centre and Savage Society.9 Due to COVID-19 pandemic regulations, the production was postponed adhering to Provincial Health guidelines. The play follows the exchanges and conversation held between two Canadian families during the Truth and Reconciliation week9 and is described by Taran as “a comedy on racial commentary – an effort to dissect the micro and macro nuance of racism that exists within Canada, particularly between Indigenous and non-Indigenous folks”.10 Taran explains that his use of comedy in his play is used to “explore the layered racism that exists within
