Keepers of the Morning Star: An Anthology of Native Women

Edited by Jaye T. Darby and Stephanie Fitzgerald, 2003

Keepers of the Morning Star: An Anthology of Native Women`s Theater showcases the exciting range of Native women`s theater today from the dynamic fusion of storytelling, ceremony, music, and dance to the bold experimentation of poetic stream-of-consciousness and Native agit-prop. While negotiating complex issues, including family, community, repatriation, sovereignty, urban relocation, and cultural and spiritual appropriation, this collection celebrates the enduring power of Native women`s traditions to heal and transform. Playwrights include: Sierra Adare, Annette Arkeketa, Margaret Bruchac, Marie Clements, Daystar/Rosalie Jones, Diane Glancy, Marcie Rendon, and Spiderwoman Theater.
