Patriot Act

 

A full length play set in Niagara Falls and one of the bridges in our territories that connects the land masses commonly defined as the United States and Canada.  Its characters lives explore Haudenosaunee identity and the borders we define for ourselves, culturally and politically, in the form of treaties, as well as those borders whose definitions are forced on us in our territories in a Post September Eleventh world.

 

Patriot Act had its first staged reading in the Identity Play Series at SUNY Oneonta in February 2011, featuring Grammy winning Oneida singer-songwriter, Joanne Shenandoah, in the lead role.
