Description

Sliver of a Full Moon by Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee), staged reading, discussion, and reception at the Arthur Wagner Theater, U.C. San Diego, Thursday November 2, 2017.

Directions: http://www-theatre.ucsd.edu/facilities/parking.htm

Sliver of a Full Moon is a portrayal of justice under the rule of law – the story of a movement to restore safety and access to justice to indigenous women in the U.S. The cast features the courageous Native women survivors who stepped forward to share their stories of abuse by non-Indians. The play will also include the voices of Alaska Native women advocates, leaders, and survivors. It chronicles the history of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) with a tribal jurisdiction provision that restores a “sliver” of the tribal criminal jurisdiction that the Supreme Court in Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe eliminated.

Mary Kathryn Nagle is a playwright and a partner at Pipestem Law, a Law firm specializing in restoring the inherent sovereignty of Native Tribes and protecting the rights of Native peoples. She was born in Oklahoma City, OK, and is an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. During 2018, her play, Sovereignty, will open at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C., and Manahatta will open at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon.
