A Question of Being

(William S. Yellow Robe, Jr.)

“The theme of Identity is supposedly the basis of all my work according to the would-be experts and authorities of Native Tribal theater.  I’m always laughing when I hear them talk of my work because the focal point of the work is humanity.  The struggle of nurturing and maintaining one’s humanity in a very violent, chaotic, and fearful society is ongoing and very real.  Native Tribal people have always had a sense of whom and what we are even after so many years of outsiders telling us what we are, both romantically and other misconceptions. What is important is the ‘Native heart’, and to make sure it is functioning and strong.  This is the crux of the work I do.”
