Bennett, Pamela J., Ed.
Indiana Historian, Sep 2001
This issue of this magazine is part of an effort to heighten the knowledge of students and teachers about Indiana's American Indian connections past, present, and future. The issue is a guide to accompany the 2001 original play, "People of the Turtle." It can stand alone as a starting place for students interested in learning about, and from, the American Indian speakers whose stories are presented in this issue. Playwright, Rita Kohn, describes the source of the play and provides context for its content, casting, and staging. The play's speakers are introduced using excerpts from their narratives; portraits of some of the speakers are also included. There is a brief introduction to the "Woodland People" and the "People of the Turtle," whose stories are the subject and content of the play. Background information is presented about the Indiana American Indian Theater Company, and key people involved. Lists 35 selected titles and 7 additional resources. (BT)
