George Emilio Sanchez’s solo performance work is the second installment of the “Performing the Constitution” series. The performance revolves around the landmark Supreme Court rulings that have diminished the Tribal Sovereignty of Native Nations in the U.S. Part historical, part autobiographical, this piece interlaces Sanchez’s experiences growing up in an Ecuadorian immigrant household navigating generational trauma and Indigenous identity. It is Sanchez’s intention to affirm how the voice and experience of Indigenous people and communities of color have the greatest impact on the story of who we are as a nation.
