Synopsis

This one-hour version of the eloquent and exciting play Black Elk Speaks was developed for the Rocky Mountain High School Tour presented by the Denver Center Theatre Company following its highly acclaimed production of the full play. This one-act version captures all the power of Black Elk's story—this country's history as viewed through Native American eyes from the moment white people entered their world through the end of Indian independence at the Wounded Knee massacre. "A play with a very rich texture that becomes far more than just another cry for justice from the Indian point of view. No one who sees this play will ever forget it...it is harnessed dynamite." (Daily News)

Customer Reviews

"Excellent reception -- a powerful and moving play that made for a powerful and moving production. Very effective."
Review by Dr. Doug Powers, Susquehanna University, Selinsgrove, PA
"The excerpt (from Black Elk Speaks) was sharp, focused, and cutting. A small cast allowed fast-changing characters to whittle out each phase of Native American history with precise and moving words. It was an experience that changed lives, both on and off the stage."
Review by Jacque Fosdick, Crowley County High School, Ordway, Colo.
