This new work features the voices of Native American, Chicana and Hispanic women honoring their sacrifice, beauty and identity by the steps they have taken both past and present.

Social Post"Telling My Story: Bridging Two Worlds" is an interactive storytelling/theater event featuring the narratives, experiences and cultural history of Indigenous Women.

It presents a collection of shared moments that celebrate and empower the everyday women in society as they journey together in the world of ‘Spider Woman’- A Navajo deity who webs together their stories and moves them toward enlightenment. Free from the constraints of stereotypes and inhibition, this new work features the voices of Native American, Chicana, and Hispanic heritage women - honoring their sacrifice, beauty, and identity by the steps they have taken both past and present.

Directed by Kim Gleason (Diné), featuring Deanna Allison, María Herrera, Christina Castro and Kim Gleason.
