W.E.B. Du Bois Lecture: Beth H. Piatote

Antíkoni and the Politics of Performance

In this talk, Beth Piatote describes the development of her play, Antíkoni, which animates the themes of Sophocles' Antigone in the contemporary context of Native American efforts to repatriate ancestral remains and belongings from museums.

Beth H. Piatote is a scholar of Native American/Indigenous literature and law; a creative writer of fiction, poetry, plays, and essays; and an Indigenous language revitalization activist/healer, specializing in Nez Perce language and literature. She is the author of two books: Domestic Subjects: Gender, Citizenship, and Law in Native American Literature (Yale 2013), which won an MLA award; and The Beadworkers: Stories (Counterpoint 2019), which was longlisted for the Aspen Words Literary Prize, the PEN/Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, and shortlisted for the California Independent Booksellers Association "Golden Poppy" Award.
