The Honouring Theatre Festival premieres on our shores in June 2008, weaving together the very best of North American Indian, Australian Aboriginal and Maori theatre.

Twisting and pulling at the many issues that face indigenous nations, Native Earth, Yirra Yaakin and Tawata Productions, offer a unique opportunity for New Zealand audiences to engage in these issues through storytelling.

Annie Mae’s Movement – Native Earth Performing Arts
Tracks Anna Mae Aquash from Wounded Knee in 1973, when she first became involved with AIM (American Indian Movement), to her death in January or February 1976. In those two years she became the only woman warrior in AIM, the confidante and lover of one of the leaders of the movement, and did continuous community work with the women of Pine Ridge Reservation, all the while suffering anguish over the separation from her children, her land and her people.

Although Anna Mae was not present at the shootout at Oglala, the incident for which Leonard Peltier is still imprisoned, she too was targeted by the law and the FBI in the months following, picked up and interrogated by the authorities, asked to inform on her people. As a result, her loyalty was questioned by the AIMsters, and she became, in some eyes, a liability to the Movement. For many years, there was speculation as to whether it was the FBI or AIM that pulled the trigger.
