Welcome to Indian Country
Claiming rich heritage, representation, and contexts both ancient and urban, Indigenous artists reveal the power of music and stories in the East Coast work-in-progress premiere of Welcome to Indian Country, commissioned in part by the Moss Arts Center.
Diverse Native American performers seamlessly share seven songs and seven stories (seven is an auspicious number in many tribes) about life, love, connecting to culture, survival, and resilience. In an evening celebrating Native peoples and culture through original and historic music, poetry, and storytelling, collaborators Delbert Anderson, Nick Lucero, Nokosee Fields, Mali Obomsawin, Lyla June, and Rena Priest represent the Dine (Navajo), Osage, Nez Perce, Lhaq'temish (Lummi), and Abenaki, as well as South American Indigenous descent.
