A wonderful performance of the play Cuentame Coyote last night for Hispanic Heritage Month. A somber story of the immigration process and experience. The story drew interesting connections to Native tribes who were separated due to the border between the U.S. and Mexico #OSUnidos #hispanicheritagemonth #ohiostate #indigenous
September 22-28th is officially designated as American Indian Week!
American Indian Week is a state-designated week honoring the influence of American Indians on Ohio. Programs will be organized state-wide to raise awareness of pre-contact, historic and modern cultures. This year’s theme is “Food, Culture and Stories,” which means a delicious, fascinating, and community focused path to an entire week of celebration.

The Student Life Multicultural Center presents the play:
Written & Directed By Dañel Malán
TONIGHT at 7PM
Open to the public
In Cuentame Coyote, two cousins are abandoned in the desert, crossing the border with a “Coyote”. In their struggle for survival they encounter coyotes with two legs and four along with a host of other spirits along their journey. The play was developed after an intensive research trip to the Tohono O’odham reservation in Arizona. Sacred stories combined with migrant tales of the dangers of dehydration, snake bite and scorpions in the desolate 100 degree desert heat fuel the storyline of this new Milagro work. Erubiel Valladares joins Milagro this season in the title role of Coyote. Ajai Terrazas Tripathi and Alida Holquín Wilson-Gunn are the two cousins and Mariel Sierra plays various roles. #OSUnidos #mcc #hispanicheritagemonth #indigenous
