The events of that cataclysmic summer permanently alter twelve-year-old David’s understanding of his family: his father, a small-town sheriff; his remarkably strong mother; David's uncle Frank, a war hero and respected doctor; and the Haydens’ Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations turn the family’s life upside down as she relates how Frank has been molesting his female Indian patients. As their story unravels around David, he learns that truth is not what one believes it to be, that power is abused, and that sometimes one has to choose between family loyalty and justice.

Designed to share the beautiful complexity of the multiracial experience, this presentation celebrates the richness of blended heritage and the power that comes from existing betwixt and between.

About Charting the Future

Even though we remain steadfastly committed to our compact with Minnesota, we know too well that our ability to fulfill this promise is at risk – threatened by challenges that could weaken educational quality and our ability to deliver on our commitments:

  • Funding shifts that threaten quality, access, and affordability;
  • Increasing competition that affects enrollments in our degree programs, customized training and continuing education;
  • Population shifts in which a larger share of Minnesotans are moving to a handful of metropolitan areas; and
  • Threats to our authority to govern.

At the same time, emerging trends create opportunities for us to become stronger and serve students in new ways:

  • Dramatic growth in the diversity of the students we serve;
  • Growth in the number of students enrolled in multiple colleges and universities within our system;
  • Changes in technology that create new opportunities for how students can learn, how we can teach and support their learning, and how we can work together;
  • The changing nature of work and what it means to be well prepared for jobs and careers; and
  • The growing need for us to demonstrate the capabilities of our graduates.
