CEDARS is a passionate and raw play- based on contemporary Native poetry-
weaving together dance, drums, rap, prose and text.
It offers insight into the world of diverse indigenous peoples and their everyday struggles,
touching on subjects of poverty, discrimination and reservation life, but also offering glimpses of hope, celebration, resistance and the beauty of indigenous cultures.
