From Edward Curtis to Dances with Wolves to the Atlanta Braves, there have been many romanticized and colonized notions of how Indigenous people should look and dress. So, for the 10th anniversary of the Short Play Festival, Native Voices asked playwrights, how have 'dress codes' affected you?

Featuring plays by Jennifer Bobiwash (Mississauga First Nation), Austen Brauker (Odawa), Camaray Davalos (Payómkawichum), Lee Cataluna (Native Hawaiian), Claude Jackson, Jr. (Gila River Indian Community), James Lujan (Taos Pueblo), Tara Moses (Seminole Nation of Oklahoma), Laura Shamas (Chickasaw), Patric Carroll Williams (Osage/Kiowa).
