On November 12th and 13th the Ohlone Costanoan Esselen Nation (OCEN) and Baktun12 (B12), with the support of the Ethnic Studies and Theater departments of UC San Diego, presented IYA: The Ex’celen Remember at the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, on the land of the Kumeyaay, as part of the UC Critical Mission Studies Conference 2021. The cast and crew of this production were made up primarily of local and regional talent that included members of OCEN, Baktun12 and the graduate and undergraduate student community of UCSD.
Inspired and informed by the life work and experiences of Tribal Chairwoman of the Ohlone Costanoan Esselen Nation, Louise J. Miranda Ramirez, B12 playwright, Luis xago Juárez, was blessed with the responsibility of curating this story for the stage beginning in late 2014. Now, after several readings presented in 2015 and 2017, we, the creators of this project, invite you to be an audience to this third rendering in honor of Native American History month.
We hope you enjoy our latest effort in telling the stories inspired by the peoples’ history of Monterey County.
