The Aunties: Women of the White Shell Water Place is a multimedia storytelling experience conceived and created by Indigenous Performance Productions. Featuring three Native American culture bearers from northern New Mexico, The Aunties cultivates a space for these remarkable individuals to tell the stories of their lives. Join us as we celebrate these Aunties through an evening of shared storytelling, music, and multimedia arts, collectively reflecting on their pasts as we look towards the future.

This show includes a post-performance talkback with the featured performers presented by the School for Advanced Research (SAR). The talkback will be led by Tara Gatewood (Isleta Pueblo).
