George Emilio Sanchez’s solo performance work is the second installment of the “Performing the Constitution” series. The performance revolves around the landmark Supreme Court rulings that have diminished the Tribal Sovereignty of Native Nations in the U.S. Part historical, part autobiographical, this piece interlaces Sanchez’s experiences growing up in an Ecuadorian immigrant household navigating generational trauma and indigenous identity. It is Sanchez’s intention to affirm how the voice and experience of Indigenous people and communities of color have the greatest impact on the story of who we are as a nation.
“In the Court of the Conqueror is in the first rank of productions communicating the legal and emotional complexity at the heart of indigenous rights issues in the United States. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” – Lindsay Robertson, Faculty Director, Center for the Study of American Indian Law and Policy, University of Oklahoma College of Law
