Spiderwoman Theater's Reverb-Ber-Ber-Rations weaves together stories of the Miguel sister's experiences growing up with the "gift." According to them, "we all have it, the gift, whether we recognize it or not. Through this gift we maintain our connections with our ancestors and other layers of existence." The performance explores their experiences growing up, specifically those surrounding their learning about Native spiritual beliefs and practices. As adults who now fully appreciate what was so carefully preserved for them by their parents and community, the sisters hope to pass on the importance of staying connected.
