Resources from Direct Address Roundtable with Indigenous Theatermakers

On November 13, Cal Shakes held an Indigenous Theatermakers Roundable as part of our Direct Address Allyship + Anti-Racism series. We are full of gratitude to Rhiana YazzieTy DefoeJeanette Harrison, and Shannon R. Davis for this conversation about centering Native stories, storytelling, and story-tellers. We are working on making the recording of the event available to share. 

As Cal Shakes works to be in reciprocal relationship with our Native community, we recognize the gift of resources this panel provided. Jeanette offered a reminder that part of being in reciprocal relationship is that, “instead of coming to take, you come to give.” With that in mind, we share this abundance of resources, as well as opportunities to act in solidarity with Native artists and movements.

A Few Actions:

More Native Artists

Native Theaters

Native Consultants, Organizations, and Educators to Follow & Support

Books, Videos, & Podcasts 

*This list is not exhaustive and will be updated.
