Rich in satire, Monique Mojica's critique of the misrepresentation of Indigenous women in American myth, literature, and documentary confronts a longstanding history of sexual violence and condemns colonial traditions that represent Indigenous women as little more than creators and healers. Since it was first published in 1991, Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots has become a classic in Canadian theatre and is still widely studied at universities and colleges around the world. The remarkable CBC radio play Birdwoman and the Suffragettes: A Story of Sacajawea is also included.
Monique Mojica is a Kuna-Rappahannock half-breed, a woman word-warrior, a mother, an actor, and a playwright. She is a founding member and former artistic director of Native Earth Performing Arts.
