John Fisher explores anthropology for Theatre Rhino
"It's almost like a children's story, this happy little fable," said John Fisher, who has written a play that extrapolates on more recent studies debunking the myth of Ishi and his patron, the noted anthropologist Alfred Kroeber, whose work with Ishi beginning in 1911 has given him his most lasting fame.
"Kroeber was very ambitious, and really was the first great American anthropologist," Fisher said. "But there's a dark side to his history, the way he exploited Ishi, and that's one of the things the play goes into."
