North American Indian Drama
What is it? North American Indian Drama Drama brings together 244 text plays by 48 American Indian, First Nation, and Pacific Islanders playwrights. More than half of the plays are previously unpublished, hard to find, and represent a wealth of dramatic material. Together, these plays demonstrate Native theaters diversity of tribal traditions and communities, approaches to drama, and individual experiences, but also reflect the commonality of the artistic drive of Native writers to give public voice to their own representations of themselves and their culture. The collection represents groups across the United States and Canada, including Cherokee, MÃ©tis, Creek, Choctaw, Pembina Chippewa, Ojibway, Lenape, Comanche, Cree, Navajo, Rappahannock, Hawaiian/Samoan and others.
