On May 23, 2018, Silver Bullet Productions will present a unique live stage performance of “And So We Walked: an artist’s journey along the Trail of Tears” at the historic Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Written and performed by renowned Cherokee actress DeLanna Studi, this is the inspiring and heartwarming story of a contemporary Cherokee woman, who embarks on an incredible journey with her father, to retrace the steps of their ancestors along the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of the Cherokee in the 1830’s. “And So We Walked” is a powerful, multi-faceted dramatic memoir that draws on extraordinary interviews, historical research and the artist’s personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts of her nation and understand her own identity.
Winner of the 2016 Butcher Scholar Award, this play, written and acted by a Native woman, responds to the need for authentic story telling.
“And So We Walked” was developed in collaboration with individuals and institutions from the Eastern Band of Cherokee and Cherokee Nation, as well as major funding from the Thomas A. Kenan Institute for the Arts. Other notable contributors include the Autry Museum of the American West, Native Voices Theater, the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and the National Trail of Tears Association.
