INDIGENOUS is a compilation of stories, poems, songs, and narratives that discuss the Indigenous Experience. Following suit of previous shows like BLACKOUT and In Lak’ Ech, the show sets out to invoke a hard discussion by confronting issues through the vein of genuine experience. From blood quantum, stereotypes, and identity, to rituals, songs, and poems, INDIGENOUS implores the audience to absorb some of the most authentic, beautiful, uncomfortable, ugly truths about who and what “America” really is.

Derived and retold from first-hand accounts to third person research on case studies, INDIGENOUS delves into understanding respecting and exploring the experiences, truths, and culture with several viewpoints of and by Indigenous People. This showcase is part of No Peeking Theatre’s mission to create a platform for underrepresented populations to have their inspirational and important stories told within the homogenous world of theatre. No Peeking attempts to break that barrier with every show they produce encouraging diversity in every facet of production from design to acting to directing.

“I could not be more proud and more passionate to present this compilation of written works. This has been in development for almost a year, but all good things come to us with time,” says Amanda Levie, founder of No Peeking Theatre.

In addition to showcasing this work, No Peeking Theatre is donating a portion of ticket sales to Indian Country Today, an online education and news platform for, of, and by Natives to inform and connect with the Indigenous Community worldwide.
