The Aunties: Women of the White Shell Water Place

Post-performance talkback with the featured performers presented by SAR and hosted by Tara Gatewood

The Aunties: Women of the White Shell Water Place is a multimedia storytelling experience conceived and created by Indigenous Performance Productions.

Join us as we celebrate these Aunties through an evening of shared storytelling, music, and multimedia arts, collectively reflecting on their pasts as we look towards the future. Featuring: Nora Naranjo Morse (Kha’p’o Owenge/Santa Clara Pueblo), Deborah Taffa (Yuma Kwaa-Tsaan/Laguna Pueblo), and Laura Tohe (Diné).
