Daughters From The Stars: Nis Bundor

Daughters from the Stars, is a Spiderwoman Theater performance about mending the riffs and misunderstanding created by physical and emotional borders. The performance was written and performed by Brooklyn sisters Gloria Miguel and Lisa Mayo, (Kuna/Rappahannock), whose mother was a Rappahannock Indian from Virginia and father was a Kuna Indian from Panama. Based loosely on the sister's travel to the San Blas Islands (their father's homeland), Daughters relates to their experiences and attempts to connect and integrate family from the North with the South. Daughters emerged from Lisa Mayo's one-woman piece entitled, Voices from the Criss-Cross Bridge.
