ASMSU is bringing the play “Belief,” performed by Salish actress Julie Cajune, to the MSU Black Box Theater at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 23.
Cajune is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and is an award-winning educator and documentary film producer. She has been profiled by Utne Reader as one of the “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.”
The show is a collaboration between Cajune, Salish poet Jennifer Finley-Greene and director Linda Grinde. It is composed of intertwined Salish women’s stories, poetry and live music. According to Cajune, the play hails to generations of Salish women who have endured loss and tragedy, yet find their way back to their heritage. By knowing their beauty through their connection to their homeland, the women can also re-establish a connection to their true selves.
Tickets will be available at the door and cost $10 for students and $20 for general admission.
