Sweet Land, Scene 1: Introduction​/​Contact (Deluxe Edition)

from Sweet Land (Deluxe Edition) by Raven Chacon, Du Yun, Aja Couchois Duncan, Douglas Kearney

supported by


Traveling by ship, the Arrivals run aground on the shore. They encounter a community they begin to call The Hosts. The captain of the Arrivals instantly breaks protocol by mistaking the Father — not Totaa'ar, the Matriarch — as the leader of the community. Despite that, the Hosts nevertheless agree to considering the Arrivals as guests: half of them
will be taken to a ceremonial feast, and half will be guided into the land and taught the ways of the community. The Arrivals split, but not before revealing that they have brought Captives with them.

Shoshone Prayer Song performed by Jehnean Washington with improvisations by Carmina Escobar and Micaela Tobin.
