Using interactive storytelling, Lisa Nelson, brings her story together with that of Lyda Conley – the first indigenous woman attorney in the U.S.  Based on true events in Kansas City (circa 1906); when suddenly a decades-old treaty between the U.S. government and the Wyandot nation is no more, Lyda, armed with the law and a gun, engages in an unconventional and remarkable battle alongside her sisters to save her family’s sacred burial ground.  With a fiery heart, she digs in her heels to fight against tribal leadership, the U.S. government, and the erasure of a people.

Also, available is LYDA: A full-length play with music in two acts.
