Savage Society was created in 2004 as a vehicle through which its members could produce their own stories as practising Indigenous Theatre and Film Artists. Originally, an ad-hoc organization, Savage Society was incorporated in 2013. Artistic Director Kevin Loring is a member of the Nlaka’pamux Nation from the Lytton First Nation in British Columbia. In 2017 he became the first Artistic Director of Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre of Canada. Based in Vancouver and New Westminster, Savage Society operates on unceded Musqueam, Tsleil-waututh, Qayqayt, and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Territory.
