About the Event
Written by Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee)
Directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera
Final weekends! Don't miss the play audiences are calling "amazingly entertaining," "timely," and "an important piece of theatre."
Set during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Fairly Traceable follows the journeys of a young Ponca man and a Chitimacha woman as they juggle personal and career ambitions with advocacy for the environment and the people they love. In this romantic dramedy, award-winning Cherokee playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle reveals the culpability of corporate polluters and climate change deniers in environmental disasters. Recommended for ages 13 and up.

Extending back to the gold rushes that devastated so many American Indian communities, natural resource “booms” that created prosperity for some Americans have extracted great costs from others. Even today, the rush to extract resources such as oil and solar has destroyed Native sacred sites and sparked protest from Native peoples. Explore these topics and see examples of Mirror Shields, a concept developed by artist Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota) during the recent Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Designed to symbolically and physically defend the “water protectors,” the shields also encourage reflection on the costs of bringing resources to market.
