A proposed copper mine pits the preservation of Indigenous holy land against the survival of a rural town. Two young leaders, fighting to save their homes, become bitter political enemies. They also form an unlikely bond. Caught in an iconic battle over the identity of American soil, will these two dreamers be able to help their warring communities find common ground?
Empathy Theatre Project presents its premiere workshop performance of “We’re Still Here,” a new musical co-authored by Mesquakie Tribal Elder Alex Walker Jr. and Playwright and Composer Cordelia Zars. Inspired by true events at Oak Flat, Arizona, this is a powerful and thought-provoking musical about cultural preservation, Indigenous rights, and rural poverty in America.
