What’s an Indian Woman to Do? and Other Plays

Mark Anthony Rolo, 2010
With an introduction by Marcie Rendon

What`s an Indian Woman to Do? and Other Plays merges farce and tragedy to reveal hidden realities of modern Native American life. This collection by the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe playwright addresses Indian casinos, sexual abuse, appropriation of Native culture, and the desperate search to achieve the American Dream. The collection includes the title play, The Way Down Story, Mama Earth Loves Lace, and Sweatlodge Pork.

A well-seasoned roller-coaster ride that is intellectually stimulating and emotionally evocative, and as all fine art does, it carries that mirror that reflects the truth.

-Bruce King, Oneida Artist and Writer

Always edgy, Mark Anthony Rolo gives us a collection of plays that reach into the dark recesses of our souls and demand respect.

-Dianne Yeahquo Reyner, Kiowa playwright

From metatheatrical satire and farce to the poignant drama of The Way Down Story, this anthology enriches and extends the American Indian voice in drama.

-Julie Pearson-Little Thunder, Thunder Road Theatre
