t’s time to decolonize your play reading list! TDM’s BIPOC Play Discussion Group meets to discuss plays by Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color playwrights, whose works are all too often left off of the syllabi at institutions of higher education. The September play will be Pure Native by Vickie Ramirez.
About Pure Native:
Brewster White returns to the reservation, with a plan to convince the tribal council and clan mothers to lease "Rez" water rights to a large food conglomerate that wants to sell Pure Native bottled water. The only problem is his close friends and family aren't on board, and his old love Connie is fiercely opposed. Will the community vote to change their recipe for traditional life with a proposal to bring hundreds of jobs to the Rez if it risks dramatically changing their daily lives? Or will they hang on to tradition?
