Siwayul (Heart of a Womxn) -

Staged Reading


September 15-October 15 is Latinx Heritage Month, and we are celebrating by having a staged reading of Nawat Two-Spirit Xemiyulu Manibusan Tapepechul's one-womxn play Siwayul (Heart of a Womxn).

Siwayul is about reclaiming Two-Spirit identity through Indigenous Salvadoran culture and diaspora; and empowering the Ancestral Goddess within. A Native American Trans Womxn seeks her place in the world. Guided by the Ancestors, she finds herself within her heart of a Womxn- Siwayul.

There will be a talk-back after the reading.
