WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Grandchildren of the Buffalo Soldiers tells a simple but emotionally powerful story of a young man returning to his roots on the Montana reservation where he grew up. Like his siblings, Craig Robe is descended from a Native-American grandmother and an African-American grandfather, a member of the famous post-Civil War cavalry regiment nicknamed "buffalo soldiers" for their curly, dark hair. Ridiculed as "too black" to be Native, the Robe family have had to struggle for acceptance not only by their tribe, but perhaps more importantly, by each other. Written by William S. Yellow Robe Jr. and directed by Lou Bellamy, founder and artistic director of Penumbra Theatre Company.
