The Indigenous Theatre Symposium featured keynote remarks from Santee Smith (Kahnyen’kehàka Nation, Turtle Clan), artistic director of Kaha:wi Dance Theatre; a Indigenous Playwrights Panel Conversation with creatives such as DeLanna Studi (Cherokee) who Geva audiences got to know through her play And So We Walked last season and who will be Geva Theatre’s 2024/26 artist in residence; a film screening of Unseen Tears; as well as a special panel composed of young Native playwrights presented in collaboration with Native Voices.

The Indigenous Theatre Symposium project was supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Indigenous Theatre Symposium was presented by Geva Theatre in association with Friends of Ganondagan and NTID and in affiliation with Native Voices as a part of their event EMBRACING THE INDIAN, Centering Indigenous Voices.
