- Join us for this performance of “Sliver of a Full Moon”, a powerful reenactment of the historic congressional reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 2013 – a movement that restored the authority of tribal governments to prosecute non-Native abusers who assault and abuse Native women on tribal lands. Written by Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma), the play is presented for the Summit in partnership with the National Congress of American Indians, the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, and the National Museum of the American Indian.
