This minicourse is in preparation for a dramatic reading in conjunction with the visit to campus of Ojibwa poet and novelist Gerald Vizenor. Vizenor’s Bear Island: The War at Sugar Point (2006) is a poetic meditation on one of the last conflicts of the U.S. Army with Native Americans at Leech Lake, MN in 1898. This dramatic reading is scheduled for March 22 in the Keene Theater, East Quad. It will be “scored” for several voices and feature projections of historical and contemporary photographs and, it is hoped, Anishnabe singers. Students will research the historical event, explore Vizenor’s anticolonialist themes of the power of the Trickster, survivance vs. victimry, etc., as well as train in verse-speaking. Readers, Native singers, theater technicians welcome.
