A Staged Reading of
In My Father's Eyes
A New Play by Mary Kathryn Nagle

A new play by renowned playwright and attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle focuses on the work Bright Eyes did to secure citizenship for all Native Americans following Judge Elmer Dundy's ruling in the landmark civil rights trial Standing Bear v. Crook.

The evening will feature a staged reading of the play, Native American food, international dance troupe "Many Moccasins," Dreams of Eagles tipis representing four Nebraska tribes, live music by local musician Michael Murphy, and a breath-taking art exhibit, "Ponca Chief Portraits" by artist Janice Rockwell.
Immediately following the play, Mary Kathryn will be joined by Rodney Morris, Chairman of the Omaha Tribe, and others on a talkback panel which will explore the concepts of law and liberty as they existed in a Post-Fourteenth Amendment America.

This program is funded in part by the Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
