The Trail of Tears in the 1830s through 1850s forced an estimated 100,000 Native Americans in the Southeastern United States to relocate west of the Mississippi River. Some 15,000 died on the 5,000-mile journey west. Among the survivors were ancestors of award-winning Cherokee writer and performer DeLanna Studi. And So We Walked is Studi's frank, heartwarming and inspiring solo show about walking with her father along a 900-mile portion of the Trail to better understand her own identity and what her ancestors endured. This multifaceted memoir draws on interviews, historical research and the artist's personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts with which contemporary Native Americans wrestle.

“These playwrights are the kind of people who don’t tell you you’re wrong about something; they meet you where you are and show you something you need to see.”
