#HonorNativeLand Pledge

AGE has pledged to acknowledge Native lands.  “Acknowledgment is a simple, powerful way of showing respect and a step toward correcting the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth”. Equity demands truth.

AGE was proud to host a rare convergence of award-winning Indigenous playwrights. Telling Native Stories to Rehumanize Native People focused on the social justice of rehumanizing Native people who have been systematically erased by colonialism.  More than 200 people at TOC were rocked and awakened by Native artists, activists and writers.  You can now listen to the full panel discussion, enjoy and share!
