Indian Act: Residential School Plays (print)

Indian Act is a tribute and thank you to those who survived the Indian residential school system so that future generations could be free to pursue their lives unhindered by educationally enforced lowered expectations and institutionalized abuse. Seven plays by contemporary Indigenous playwrights cover the broad scope of residential school experiences, all kinds of characters, and no stereotypes, giving voice to those who could not be heard.

Includes the plays:

Nôhkom by Michael Greyeyes
Bunk #7 by Larry Guno
They Know Not What They Do by Tara Beagan
God and the Indian by Drew Hayden Taylor
A Very Polite Genocide or The Girl Who Fell to Earth by Melanie J. Murray
kihēw by Curtis Peeteetuce
Dear Mr. Buchwald by Yvette Nolan
