The Coatlicue Theater Company's 'A Traditional Kind of Woman: Too Much, Not 'Nuff,' deals with issues of domestic violence, incest, rape, HIV/AIDS, alcoholism, drugs, cancer, diabetes, nutrition and racism. This piece was commissioned by the American Indian Community House's (AICH) Women's Wellness Circle. It was developed from healing and empowerment stories collected from women from the community with the goal of empowering other Native women. Using music, song and 'larger than life' props, the sisters communicate the heartbreak, absurdity, pain, humor and power of the stories. It has been shown across the country to Native audiences, healthcare providers and at numerous conferences.
