The Secret Life of Spantsa

Olive Oatman was a white American migrant who, in 1852, found herself adopted by the Mojave Tribe at the age of 15. Upon returning to white society, Olive spent a decade travelling the country and lecturing about her experiences to audiences that were both horrified by and hungry to know more about indigenous culture. This highly physical performance delves into the seamy side of American expansionary history by moving beyond the standard narrative of so-called captivity stories into the inner world of a woman caught between cultures and permanently marked by murder.
