Description

A frank, heartwarming and inspiring story about a contemporary Cherokee woman and her father who embark on an incredible 900-mile journey along the “Trail of Tears” to truly understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation. The six-week journey retraces the path her great-great grandparents took in the 1830s during the forced relocation of more than 17,000 Cherokee from their homelands. And So We Walked is a powerful, multi-faceted dramatic memoir that draws on extraordinary interviews, historical research, and the artist’s personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts with which the Cherokee wrestle. Written and performed by Cherokee artist DeLanna Studi. Produced in collaboration with the Arts and Society Initiative of the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts. See website for full performance calendar. Due to length and content, this performance is strongly recommended for ages 12 and up.
