$22,000 to support And So We Walked - An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears (MAP 2016)

About the Project

And So We Walked - An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears is a frank, funny and sometimes misguided story of a contemporary Cherokee woman who goes on a six-week, 900-mile journey with her father along the Trail of Tears in search of her heroic self. Through this personal odyssey, DeLanna Studi’s sense of identity—both as a contemporary Cherokee and as a woman—is tested by the people and places she encounters. This multi-faceted dramatic memoir draws on interviews, historical research and the artist’s personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts with which DeLanna and the Cherokee wrestle. This project will be produced in collaboration with the Arts and Society Initiative of the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts.
