Tombs of the Vanishing Indian

Presented in 2011 by Native Earth Performing Arts and red diva projects

Three sisters and their mother are forced by the American government to relocate from Oklahoma to Los Angeles. As these four women try to re-establish connections to a new land, they each find themselves lost. Inspired by true events, Tombs of the Vanishing Indian is a poetic excavation of the lost stories of displaced Aboriginal people.

This show marked the reunion of Yvette Nolan and Marie Clements, seven years after their award-winning production of The Unnatural and Accidental Women.
