I’m taking a shot in the dark here because I haven’t had any luck identifying this show, probably because my memories of it are so vague.
Sometime in the 80s, or possibly the early 90s, I saw a show on PBS. All I can remember is that it was, for lack of a more descriptive term, a Native American “opera”. I know it was a live performance of Native American dances and music which told a story, possibly of a young man’s discovery of his heritage. Unfortunately I can’t remember anything more specific about it, which is why I’m having trouble identifying it. I’m certain that the author and performers were Native Americans, because I seem to recall that the broadcast included background on the piece.
If anyone has any ideas on where else I can search for further info on this, I’d appreciate it. I’d love to find out that it’s available on DVD, although I’m not very hopeful considering its age and probable obscurity.
