La MaMa in New York City presented the Urban Indigenous Arts & Culture Symposium performance of Don't Feed the Indians—A Divine Comedy Pageant from CultureHub  livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 14 November at 18:00 GMT (London) / 1 p.m. EST (Toronto) / 12 p.m. CST (Chicago) / 10 a.m. PST (Vancouver) / 9 a.m. AKST (Anchorage).

Watch out when Indian show business meets the Doctrine of Discovery. A raucous play and political satire loosely based on Dante's Inferno. A comedic look at the negative marginalization of Indigenous Peoples and the appropriation of Indigenous cultural and intellectual property. See what happens when the Indians push back.
