Silver Bullet Productions will produce a Staged Reading of a play by one of Native America’s most prominent playwrights, Mary Kathryn Nagle.

 

with Wes Studi • DeLanna Studi • Robert Mesa • Kholan Studi

“They used our Sovereignty to establish the United States, and now they seek to destroy it.”

This moving Drama set in both the 1830s and today, tells the story behind the landmark 1832 case won by Cherokee Nation in the U.S. Supreme Court, Worcester v. Georgia, when the court declared the Cherokee Nation’s criminal jurisdiction over non-Indian American citizens on Cherokee Lands. The contemporary scenes of the play involve a Cherokee woman lawyer and her non-Indian boyfriend, who challenges the constitutionality of Native jurisdiction under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

This event will raise funds for Silver Bullet Productions’ education programs and documentary films, and enrich Santa Fe’s cultural community with an important piece of Native American theater.
