  • MOTHER EARTH'S CHILDREN

    MOTHER EARTH'S CHILDREN is a local all-Indian theater group that visually interprets traditional stories with actors who react to the storyteller's story. The first story told by Esther is a favorite of hers called "Why Children Should Not Go Out At Night". Esther enjoys telling the story about old Dark Lady who catches children at night in her sticky Cedar bark dress. Other stories present teaching stories and creation stories that include Coyote, Bear, and other traditional characters. MOTHER EARTH'S CHILDREN uses funds received from its performances to provide American Indian/ Alaska Native Student Achievement Awards to graduating seniors in all six school districts in Coos County. The group has also performed outside its local area to give other area programs ideas on how to start their own American Indian Repertory Theater. Funds from these performances are also used to award the MEC Student Achievement Awards.
