Murielle Borst: More Than Feathers and Beads

Murielle Borst: More Than Feathers and Beads HIDVL

More than Feather and Beads is Murielle Borst's semi-autobiographical one-woman show which examines contemporary issues of identity for Native American women. Borst is a champion shawl dancer and wrote this theatrical comedy about her experiences competing in pow-wows across the country. As the title implies she finds there's more than feathers and beads to the pow-wow "scene." Murielle Borst is the daughter of Muriel Miguel, the co-founder of Spiderwoman Theater, the longest running Native women's theater troupe in the country. She has appeared as a guest artist in several Spiderwoman's productions and has also appeared in and collaborated on several works with the American Indian Youth Theater Project, which is a part of the American Indian Community House's (AICH) American Indian Youth Council.
