Update on Super Indian

From Arigon Starr:The week prior I was privileged to participate as a writer in the Native Voices at the Autry's Festival of New Plays. "Super Indian" was brought to life by a talented group of actors including Kalani Queypo, Zahn McClarnon, Michael Mattys, Gil Birmingham, Robert Greygrass, Rob Vestal, Delanna Studi, Tonantzin Carmelo, Thirza Defoe, Tom Allard, Joe Sanfelippo and Kevin Sifuentes. I wrote ten five minute episodes--and I was definitely helped in the process by director Bill Dufris, Carolyn Dunn, Sue Zizza, David Shinn, Janna Lopez and musicians Charlie Otte, Vincent Whipple and Dean Mora.


We worked for a total of fifteen hours to polish the script and performances. We had a rockin', rowdy crowd on a Saturday night at the Autry National Center. I'm so glad that folks responded positively to the story of a Reservation Boy who gains super-powers by eating tainted Commodity Cheese!
