New Native Theatre is the Upper Midwest’s professional theatre company dedicated to Native artists and audiences. As the most frequently producing Native American theatre in the Midwest, New Native Theatre has been creating professional pathways into careers in the performing arts and seeding the ecosystem with Native talent since its founding by Diné/Navajo Artistic Director, Rhiana Yazzie in 2009. NNT is a dedicated anti-racist, anti-colonial organization that believes theatre is one of the most powerful tools for reclaiming resilience, health, and agency for indigenous tribal communities.
