An Artist’s Journey Along the Trail of Tears
Written and Performed by DELANNA STUDI
A frank, heartwarming and inspiring story of a contemporary Cherokee woman and her father who embark on a 900-mile journey along the Trail of Tears to understand her identity and the conflicts remaining for this nation and the Cherokee nation.
This live performance is a powerful, multi-faceted dramatic memoir that conveys the complexities and conflict with which the Cherokee wrestle.
DeLanna Studi’s (Cherokee) Off-Broadway Debut in Informed Consent, at the Duke Theater on 42nd Street, was a New York Times Critics’ Pick, which described her performance as “moving gravity”. She was a company member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where she was one of only 10 Native people to have done so.

Pam was the Keynote Speaker for the Women’s Forum at Roanoke. In addition to working with students, Pam was honored to meet with Asst.

Thank you to all who made our Words Matter event a success. The audience enhanced the knowledgable moderator – Sam Donaldson – and panelists – Julie Mason and Valerie Plame Wilson – by asking thoughtful questions. We will long remember the cogent and timely points made about the power of the rhetoric in the past year.
None of this would be possible without the generosity of our Sponsors and the tireless work of the SBP Board of Directors and Event Committee.
