"Indian Act is a tribute and thank you to those who survived the Indian Residential School system so that future generations could be free to pursue their lives unhindered by educationally enforced lowered expectations and institutionalized abuse. Seven plays by contemporary First Nations playwrights cover the broad scope of residential school experiences, all kinds of characters, and no stereotypes, giving voice to those who could not be heard. Includes the plays: Bunk #7 by Larry Guno; God and the Indian by Drew Hayden Taylor; They Know Not What They Do by Tara Began; A Very Polite Genocide or The Girl Who Fell to Earth by Melanie J. Murray; Kihew by Curtis Peeteetuce; Dear Mr. Buchwald by Yvette Nolan; and more"--provided by publisher.
