Thank You Lummi Youth Academy!


Hands for a Bridge was honored to host a day of education, laughter and learning on October 22 by hosting the play Sonny Sixkiller Buys the Washington Redskins.

This exciting live production by Native American playwright, Darrell Hillaire, was shown last year to an enthusiastic audience at the Moore Theatre and joined us again to Seattle onstage at Roosevelt High School!  The large cast includes tribal youth, elders and others from the Lummi Tribe.

The play was staged throughout the school day for students of Roosevelt High School, and again that evening for the community at large. Over 300 members of the community came to the evening production to explore the controversy surrounding the NFL’s Washington Redskins’ mascot and its impacts on Native Americans and all people. After each production of the play, the cast and crew hosted a dialogue session with the audience.
