A line of photos are illuminated on amber-hued walls as the sun creeps through the blinds. The photos tell the story of The Children of the Setting Sun Productions — everything from canoe racing to live performances. Executive Director and Founder Darrell Hillaire sits beneath the pictures, working on his next idea.
The name, Children of the Setting Sun, dates back to the 1930s when Darrell’s great-grandfather formed a song and dance troupe with the same name. When Darrell’s great-grandfather was alive, he got involved in politics by appealing the government to regain control of their land. His great-grandfather’s final message before passing was to “keep the fires burning.”
