Resource Guide: 'Daughters of the Deer' by Danielle Daniel

On March 7, 2024 the Folger’s virtual book club continues with a discussion of Daughters of the Deer by Danielle Daniel. To prepare for the discussion, we have pulled together a list of resources related to the colonizing of the Americas.

LEARN more about Madeline Sayet’s Where We Belong, described by Folger Theatre Artistic Director Karen Ann Daniels as an “invitation to all of us to begin our journey to understand the real impact of colonization and erasure of Indigenous peoples and cultures.”
