Native-American show business meets the Doctrine of Discovery. A raucous political satire loosely based on Dante’s Inferno, Don’t Feed the Indians  is a comedic look at the marginalization of indigenous peoples and the appropriation of their cultural and intellectual property. See what happens when the Indians push back!

This performance can only be seen as a Live internet broadcast.


12-5pm / Saturday, November 15th

Directed and written by: Murielle Borst-Tarrant (Kuna/Rappahannock), Director: “Safe Harbors” Indigenous Arts/Theater Collective at La MaMa ETC.

Presented by La MaMa Theatre in collaboration with the Weesageechak Begins to Dance Festival, Native Earth Performing Arts and First Peoples Fund and the Ford Foundation through a grant from the FPF Our Nations Spaces Program.
