The National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, the Indian Law Resource Center, and the National Congress of American Indians present Sliver of a Full Moon, a powerful new play by Cherokee playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle as part of the United Nations’ World Conference on Indigenous Peoples.
Sliver of a Full Moon documents the grassroots movement that led to the historic reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (“VAWA”) in March 2013, complete with a new provision restoring tribal jurisdiction over non-native offenders who commit crimes against Native women. Sliver of a Full Moon's cast features three of the courageous women who stepped forward in 2013 to share their stories of survival and abuse with Congress: Diane Millich (Southern Ute), Lisa Brunner (White Earth Ojibwe), and Billie Jo Rich (Eastern Band Cherokee).
The play will livestream on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Sunday September 21 at 1 p.m. EDT (New York) / 12 p.m. CDT / 11 a.m. MDT / 10 a.m. PDT / 9 a.m. AKDT (Alaska) at the Church Center for the United Nations Chapel in New York, and then again on Joe's Pub Youtube page at 7 p.m. EDT (New York) / 6 p.m. CDT / 5 p.m. MDT / 4 p.m. PDT / 3 p.m. AKDT (Alaska) at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater in New York.
