Louis Mofsie & Gloria Miguel: Grandma, Grandpa, & The Card Game

Three plays written by playwright Hanay Geiogamah: Grandpa, performed by Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago); Grandma, performed by Gloria Miguel (Kuna/Rappahannock); and The Card Game, performed together by Mofsie and Miguel.

Hanay Geiogamah was born in Lawton, Oklahoma in 1945. He studied journalism at the University of Oklahoma and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Theater and Drama from the University of Indiana in 1980. He has taught at Colorado College, the University of Washington, and the University of California at Los Angeles, and is one of the founders of the American Indian Theater Ensemble and co-founder of the American Indian Dance Theater. Geiogamah is known for "plays in which he employs humor, realism, and idiomatic language to subvert negative stereotypes about Native Americans and to address the alienation felt by Indians in contemporary American society." Louis Mofsie is Chairperson of the Board of Directors at the American Indian Community House in New York City and Director of the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers, an organization that raises scholarship funds for Indian students. Gloria Miguel is a co-founder of Spiderwoman Theater the longest running Native women's theater troupe in the country.
