STG Presents Sonny Sixkiller Buys the Washington Redskins at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
The Theatre Production, “Sonny Sixkiller Buys the Washington Redskins,” is a comedic story with a serious punch line about the controversy around the Washington Redskins mascot. Sonny Sixkiller, an ex-star athlete at the University of Washington, convinces Native American leadership to buy the Washington Redskins from Dan Snyder, owner of the Redskins.
The story sheds light on Native American mascots and the history of ridiculing Native American symbolism after the near complete genocide of Native Americans by the Europeans. The youth involved with the production will receive an education on Native American people and their historical trauma.
The youth from the Northwest Indian College and Lummi Youth Academy will be involved with all phases of the production from script writing, rehearsals, graphic art development, stage management, and promotions.
The youth, cast and crew, and the audience will share in the ideas of changing the name of the Washington Redskins. Conversations about genocide, trauma, racism will be chronicled and shared with the Lummi Indian Business Council, the Lummi Community and all other interested parties.
The cast and crew invite all attendees to join them for a post-show discussion in the theatre.
