This resource amplifies and annotates the works of Indigenous playwrights in North America. Inspired by Cherokee playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle’s call to emphasize the output of Native writers #InsteadOfRedface, and instructed by the observations of New Native Theatre Artistic Director Rhiana Yazzie (Navajo) that most North American theatre-goers lack the background information to be ready audiences for Native plays, this guide supplies dramaturgical resources for audiences, students, teachers, and producers. Because we want more productions of fantastic Indigenous plays … instead of redface.
