DRAMA WITH MUSIC AND DANCE. With the winter food supply running low, everyone in the village is hopeful that the men will be successful on their next hunt and bring back enough meat to feed the village. Rising Sun yearns to join his father on the hunt, but since he is still too young, he must stay at home with his mother and sister. Rising Sun watches with envy as another youth, White Calf, sets out with the hunting party. But when the hunters return, Rising Sun discovers that his father was accidentally killed by White Calf. Devastated, Rising Sun blames White Calf for his father’s death, and his grief turns to anger and hatred. It is only when the Spirit of the Deer appears during Rising Sun’s vision quest, that Rising Sun is able to learn the importance of forgiveness, acceptance, and understanding, and fully enter into manhood. This gripping coming-of-age story features an authentic mock hunt ceremony that will provide an exhilarating theatre experience.
