This is a gem of a theater. I look forward to seeing other plays in the Native Voices series.

Soda and snacks from vending machines - a lot less pricey than a concession stand!

A wonderful, funny, and informative look at The American Melting Pot, with an ephasis on the native american ingredient.

Maybe we're spoiled, but while this was certainly OK, it wasn't anything more when compared to similar events. The characters weren't distinct enough, not much new info or insight gleaned. A little, just not enough. We skipped the second show...continued

Description

Written and performed by Robert Owens-Greygrass (Lakota)

Directed by Kevin Sifuentes (Hopi)

Producing Artistic Director Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)

Producing Executive Director Jean Bruce Scott *_

Walking on Turtle Island_*

In this tour-de-force performance, Robert Owens-Greygrass embodies twenty-two characters—from a grandfather, to a mixed-blood sun dancer, to a boy who has lost his dog, to an eighty-year-old Ojibway woman, to Iyeska, a trickster and spirit guide who moves through centuries and inhabits various spiritual “skins.” Greygrass portrays the often untold Indigenous experience through these powerful and unique stories of Turtle Island (North America).*_

Ghostlands of an Urban NDN_*

Follow Robert, a multiethnic-non specific-lower-middle-class-urban-NDN (Indian) white guy, as he navigates the conflicting worlds of a mixed-race heritage. Acclaimed storyteller Robert Owens-Greygrass portrays sixteen characters in this gritty look at the sometimes humorous, always gripping urban Native journey through the ghostlands.

These shows are appropriate for those ages 14 and older.
