DeLanna Studi dreamed of following the footsteps her ancestors were forced to travel along the Trail of Tears. In 2015 the Cherokee actor, writer, and activist embarked on a six-week journey to retrace the path her great-great-grandparents took in the 1830s when they were forced to relocate from their homelands with more than 17,000 Cherokee people. "And So We Walked" is a powerful one-woman show that recounts Studi’s incredible 900-mile journey to truly understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation.
DeLanna Studi performs the full play live on the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre stage, with four performances presented in celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Portraying multiple characters and incorporating humor and emotional touchpoints, Studi blazes a path squarely into the heart of the audience member.
Tickets are $25.00 for general admission and $10.00 for students with ID and youth 18 and under.
