And So We Walked: An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears

By DeLanna Studi

A frank, heartwarming and inspiring story about a contemporary Cherokee woman and her father who embark on an incredible 900-mile journey along the “Trail of Tears” to truly understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation. The six-week journey retraces the path her great-great grandparents took in the 1830s during the forced relocation of more than 17,000 Cherokee from their homelands. And So We Walked is a powerful, multi-faceted dramatic memoir that draws on extraordinary interviews, historical research, and the artist’s personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts with which the Cherokee wrestle. Written and performed by DeLanna Studi, Cherokee artist and winner of the 2016 Butcher Scholar Award from The Autry Museum of the American West. Developed in close collaboration with individuals and institutions within the Eastern Band of Cherokee and Cherokee Nation, with supplemental support from Native Voices Theatre, American Indian Center and Process Series at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Produced in collaboration with the Arts and Society Initiative of the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts.
