Audio/Visual

This video documents the American Indian Theatre Ensemble performing "Body Indian" on tour at Rough Rock Demonstration School in Chinle, Arizona, in 1973. Rough footage from the production has been edited to create this video, which opens with a handwritten title reading “La MaMa presents the American Indian Theatre Ensemble production of...”, followed by footage of a program for the production “Body Indian”, and closes with another handwritten title, reading “this videotape was produced under the auspices of the N.I.E.A. [National Indian Education Association] Library Project at Rough Rock Demonstration School”. The original video was shot on a Portapak camera. The footage is held on reel C18.

Video documentation of a 1972 production of “Body Indian” at La MaMa is contained on Reel B46 in La MaMa’s collection.
