Ariel Luckey

I interviewed Oakland based activist and performer, Ariel Luckey, about his show the Free Land Project, a hip-hop theater piece that deals with a white man’s journey into the history of his family’s land. He covers the Homestead Act which granted pioneer white families expanses of land, stolen from Native Americans.  Ariel shares his thoughts on the origin’s of his theater project and what people should know about some common misconceptions about native peoples that are still passing as fact. Ariel has worked as an educator and entertainer who has been praised for taking a critical and honest look at the history of white people in America. This show was originally aired on Full Circle on October 15th, 2010 in honor of Indigenous People’s Day.
