Native America: Spiderwoman Theater, "Sun, Moon, and Feather"

For several years the American Indian Community House (AICH) produced a cable network show titled Native America. Performances in the Circle at AICH were videotaped, edited, and aired on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network in half hour segments.

This episode features, Spiderwoman Theater's Sun, Moon, and Feather. Blending fantasy and reality, humor and seriousness, it is based on the sisters Rappahannock names and weaves together the stories each remembers about their experience growing up as Indians in Brooklyn. Spiderwoman Theater is the longest continuous running Native female performance group. Comprised of three Kuna/ Rappahannock sisters from Brooklyn, New York, Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel, and Muriel Miguel, the group has travel all over the world giving performance, lectures, and workshops. Named after the weaver in the Hopi creation story the sisters "storyweave" their message in a variety of formats including poetry, dance, theater, and song.
