About the Production
Aan Yatx'u Saani: Noble People of the Land is an interview-based theater production featuring five Alaska Native elders sharing their own personal stories, illuminating their deep connections with Juneau's Old Indian Village and the downtown area often called the Willoughby District. With music and video projections, they weave their memories with little-known histories revealing massive changes that have marked the heart of the Capital City.
