Event description

Description

Written by Jason Grasl (Blackfeet)

Directed by Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)

In this wickedly funny new comedy, a magically charged world is ignited by wise-cracking spirit animals brought to life by puppets as estranged brothers of the Blackfeet Nation are pitted against one another in a fierce debate over the personal and economic issues Native people face today on their sovereign land. While exploiting mineral rights could provide economic relief for the tribe, it could also destroy sacred land. Traditions are challenged, allegiances are tested, and long-buried secrets are forced into light in this dark comedy.

Suggested for ages 14 and up due to strong language and complicated subject matter.
