A sense of identity can be hard to find at any age, especially in college. But when a modern-day Muskogee-Creek Indian girl loses her grandmother and finds herself tasked with a deep-probing Anthropology assignment, she sets off to rediscover her family's culture. The path isn't straightforward, though. Along the way she finds herself alienating people, testing the patience of her family, and dipping her toes into romance. She also comes to realize that her position in the world is one of cultural struggle: between her family's traditions and a modern culture apathetic to those traditions.
The Wichita Center for the Arts
Theatrical performances, photo workshops, exhibitions, and toddler art classes—at The Wichita Center for the Arts, no medium, or artist, is too big or small. The center has been a cultural one-stop shop since its inception in 1920. Within, 14,000 square feet of gallery space house a permanent collection of more than 6,500 pieces, as well as rotating exhibits from regional and national artists. A theater space, meanwhile, stages musicals, dramas, children's shows, and even films. And, in keeping with its mission to "improve understanding about the visual and performing arts," the center offers up educational classes for all ages, allowing students to unleash their inner painter or understand that the clown who sleeps under their bed is just an artist.
