Stories From the Drum 

McGuire Proscenium Stage. 

Overview

Three performances only 

Stories From the Drum is an Indigenous-led performance born from the hearts and minds of the Native community. Created through a series of workshops developed and facilitated by Larissa FastHorse (Sicangu Lakota), Ty Defoe (Haudenosaunee, Six Nations/Anishinaabe Nation), Marisa Carr (Turtle Mountain Ojibwe) and Jaida Grey Eagle (Oglala Lakota), this illuminating work features an all-Native cast from the Twin Cities. To top off the celebration with community, a pop-up market will showcase fine art by local Indigenous makers.

About the project

In summer 2017, the Guthrie collaborated with Indigenous Direction to produce Water Is Sacred — a performance that blended ceremony, music, text, dance and discussion to celebrate water and acknowledge how water has been threatened on Indigenous lands. Stories From the Drum builds on this important work.
