The Shapeshifters Are Out! More Supernatural Tales from Native American tradition in Western New York
Most Native Americans have a keen awareness of their ancestral traditions, especially in regards to the supernatural. THE SHAPESHIFTERS ARE OUT! is a gripping spoken-word performance that profiles ancient Six Nations’ supernatural/spiritual traditions, then turns to the accounts of contemporary witnesses in which the old figures seem to live: witches, ghosts, shapeshifters, and those curious, ambiguous Little People. The woods, hills, and valleys of the Genesee could be more alive than we think!
