Native Vision Program @ EWU this Thursday

Native Vision

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk in someone else's shoes?  Come take a walk through history as Living Voices depicts a Navajo girl exploring her family's past while struggling to keep her culture in a government-run boarding school.   This story (1930's to 1940's) is brought to life through the performance of Lily Gladstone.  Lily Gladstone (Blackfeet/Nez Perce) graduated with a BFA in Acting and a Minor in Native American Studies from the University of Montana in 2008.  Born and raised on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northwestern Montana, Lily is excited to be a part of an expanding presence of Native voices in the performing arts.  She hopes that through Native Vision, she can in some way honor this story of extreme adversity, extraordinary resilience and, ultimately, of healing.

Native Vision is one of several Living Voices multi-media performances that combines theater, video and live interaction to impact its audience.  The EWU Libraries is proud to host this event on the following date and times:
