The American Indian Theater in Performance is a comprehensive collection that presents views of leading playwrights, directors, scholars, and educators who are committed to the artistic and academic development of contemporary Native theater performance. The book is divided into four sections: Perspectives and Locations, Recent Directions and Performance Considerations, Interviews and Reflections, and Resources. The resources section includes an extensive annotated bibliography of critical resources including multiple plays by Native authors, published plays by Native playwrights, video resources, and internet resources. These playwrights invite the reader to reflect upon the painful past; share in the values of family, community, and tribe; and recognize Indian humor and spirituality.
