About dåko'ta's Buried Beneath: Buried Beneath weaves spoken word poetry, traditional chant, ukelele, and modern movement to tell dåko'ta's queer life story through a new genre of hip hop theatre.  When bombs erupt, dåko'ta re-carves family, to heal from generations of trauma, troubled by a devotedly catholic nåna and World War II veteran påpa. Bombs & Låtte  are metaphors contrasting our own potential we could come together to build a sturdy foundation that elevates our people, like the Låtte, or we can allow weapons to be built, stored, and launched to destroy life. Growing up in a family of war survivors, dåko'ta struggles between a mainstream culture of fear, over their own indigenous culture of respect and inafa'maolek (mutual respect and harmony with community).

Also featuring Crystal Ybarra: "She is an in-your-face artist with a rhythm divine. Listening to Ybarra is a pleasure and pain, like quickly running your fingers quickly through a candle flame - her words are as hot as they are cold, dancing about, emitting heat and light." -Seattle Gay News

IMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunately Washington Hall is currently inaccessible to people with physical disabilities and others who cannot climb steep flights of stairs. As part of an effort to "Get Lifted," the Washington Hall Anchor Partners (including Voices Rising) are working to advocate for city funds to support the addition of an elevator for the building. If you would like to help support this effort, please contact Deputy Mayor Darryl Smith with your comments at darryl.smith@seattle.gov.
