By Drew Hayden Taylor

A food fight for the ages!

The cultivation of wild rice incites a fierce dispute between a native farmer and a white cottager, which escalates into a symbol of reconciliation. Through an endearing and amusing narrative, this story tackles important themes of community, respect, and ownership. Cottagers & Indians is a timely tale that culminates in a legendary food fight.

Featuring James Dallas Smith* and Martha Irving*. Directed by Samantha Wilson*.  Creative team: Anthony Allen (Technician); Dave Belyea (Head Carpenter); Matthew Blackwood (Technical Director); Teagan Keith* (Stage Manager); Brenda McLeese (Wardrobe); Drew Murdock (Production Manager, Set & Lighting Designer) and Ryan Rafuse (Sound Designer).
