ABOUT INDIGENOUS VOICES
The Indigenous Voices Series was created by Pangea World Theater and is co-presented by Intermedia Arts. Indigenous Voices explores issues in the indigenous agenda, focusing not only on internal details but also the wider global and national contexts through the medium of theater and performance art.
In this series, local, national, and international artists raise issues that affect their community—issues of identity, rights, struggles, and experiences. Featured artists have included Native Americans James Luna, Bently Spang, Marcus Amerman, Heid Erdrich, Sterlin Harjo and Keo Woolford; Niuean-Samoan Dianna Fuemana; Native Canadian Margo Kane; and Tasmanian aboriginal Tammy Anderson. The series has included youth workshops, poetry slams and a global indigenous summit featuring speakers from across the world.
