Aan Yátx’u Sáani: Noble People of the Land

“Aan Yátx’u Sáani: Noble People of the Land, The Juneau Histories Theater Project,” is a one-of-a-kind theatrical event in which 5 Alaska Native community members share their real stories, illuminating their deep connections with the past, present, and future of Juneau and Southeast Alaska. With music and video projections, they weave their memories with little-known histories revealing massive changes that have marked the heart of Alaska’s Capital City. “Aan Yátx’u Sáani: Noble People of the Land” lifts up enduring community and cultural values towards a more inclusive and just future for all Alaskans.

“Aan Yátx’u Sáani: Noble People of the Land” is written and directed by Ryan Conarro and Frank Henry Kaash Katasse, in collaboration with the storytellers: Ernestine Hayes, Khinkaduneek Paul Marks, Lillian Petershoare, Marcelo Quinto, and Walter A. Soboleff, Jr.

Produced by Juneau Arts & Humanities Council in association with Ping Chong + Company.
