(Re)Imagine Indigenous Theater

Thursday, November 19

Watch Video

Indigenous communities are the original and continued stewards and artists of this land and yet were excluded from shaping mainstream theater as we see it today. What would theater look like in the United States if it was shaped by indigenous communities and upheld tribal sovereignty? How are storytelling, land, and community linked when led by indigenous knowledge, expertise, and tradition?
