"Explore What it Means to be American..."

Eagle Project is a professional performing arts company, fiscally sponsored by New York Live Arts, that behaves as an artistic laboratory by utilizing theater, music, dance, spoken word, and film to dissect the American identity, while using the Native American experience, both past and present, as the primary means for which to conduct its exploration. This mission is carried out through the development and staging of the works of Native American playwrights, educational outreach on Native American culture, and the production of the works of other American voices that are not frequently heard.

This Play is Native Made

Written and Performed by Ryan Victor "Little Eagle" Pierce

In response to the State of New Jersey's recent treatment of its indigenous people, a Lenape artist takes us on an odyssey of everything old still being new, and how the emancipation of this Nation of First Contact can lead to the freedom of all residents of the East Coast.

HUNKA

Written by Larissa FastHorse
Directed by Ryan Victor Pierce

Making of relatives. One of the seven sacred rites of the Lakota.
 
One night, a very pregnant teen, Kit, brings together her baby's grandmother, Laura, and the daughter Laura gave away, Nicole, in a desperate attempt to find something that means family for her and her child. For the first time in her life, Nicole, who was raised by white parents, has to face questions about her Native American father, and what being half Native means to her. Can you have a family by choice (hunka) or does blood somehow tie people together, even against their will?
