Portland Center Stage at The Armory 128 N.W. 11th Ave., Portland, OR
"In a world-premiere commissioned by Portland Center Stage, Cherokee Nation playwright/attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle—whose Manahatta was a hit at last year’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival—revisits the legacies of Sacajawea, Lewis & Clark and the ongoing tribal struggles regarding lands around what European settlers called the Missouri River." - Oregon Arts Watch
Crossing Mnisose (pronounced “mini-so-shay”) tells the story of one of America's first feminists, Sacajawea, and draws a line from a completely original view of Lewis and Clark to the present day, as descendants of the Dakota and Lakota Nations continue their fight for the Mnisose (or what Europeans named the “Missouri River”) and the lands that contain the burials of their ancestors. From celebrated playwright, activist and attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee Nation), whose Manahatta captivated audiences at Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
