Project HOOP News: 2002

Haskell University lands contract for summer theater program

Seven university students are helping usher in a new era in American Indian theater this month at Haskell Indian Nations University.

The students are the inaugural class of a three-year Project HOOP workshop, a grant-funded initiative to establish American Indian theater as an integrated subject of study at tribal colleges, American Indian communities and K-12 schools.

The students arrived at Haskell Monday and will study scriptwriting, improvisation and acting through Aug. 3. Their experience will culminate in a performance at the new Haskell Cultural Center and Museum and the receipt of six hours of college credit.
