About the Event

Storytelling is a way to preserve culture and language, which is why Native Voices is thrilled to bring back its Young Native Playwrights program, but this time with a post-pandemic twist! With the help of Zoom, Native youth from across Turtle Island will participate in an eight-week playwriting course that will nourish, elevate, and amplify their voices. Plays written will be performed live onstage at the Autry, as well as livestreamed, so that these Young Playwrights, their families, and their communities can see that their voice is valid and their stories matter. 

Land Acknowledgment

The Autry Museum of American West acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). We recognize that the Autry Museum and its campuses are located on the traditional lands of Gabrielino/Tongva peoples and we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
