Native Voices at the Autry
First Look Series: Then & Now
Thursday, September 25, 2014
What is the history and legacy of the Indian boarding school and how does it inform or haunt Native Americans today? Using historical documents, first-person narratives, and present-day interviews of boarding school survivors, an ensemble of Native performers curates an evening of new work that explores the forced dispersal of Native peoples and the attempt to eradicate their cultural traditions and practices.
This free staged reading is presented as part of Native Voices at the Autry’s 2014–2015 season, themed “Legacy and Loss: Stories From the Indian Boarding School.”
