Playwriting, Part One: Setting the Stage in Your Community
By Ryan Winn for the "Tribal College Journal"


Ryan Winn column

At College of Menominee Nation (CMN), we produce professional plays to great fanfare. But it’s our original shows that truly resonate with our patrons. Writing our own plays is an experience that connects CMN’s students with their community by dramatizing the issues facing the current generation. In the past we’ve tackled topics such as racism in border towns, the ownership of traditional artifacts, and the history of America’s Indian blood quantum policies. The enthusiasm over our original shows led us to partner with the Oneida Nation Arts Program to stage readings and productions of new Native plays from across Wisconsin in 2015. Read more
