Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Written in ritualized "trickster" language and acted by four women, this alternately comic and deeply tragic play is a retelling of the cultural genocide committed against the Native Peoples of British Columbia. They lost their fishing, hunting, and grazing rights; their lands; and, finally, their language. The play is based on a deposition signed in 1910 by fourteen chiefs of the Thompson River Basin.
