Thirteen-year-old Maria is having trouble in school, so her mom sends her to stay with her Coahuiltecan grandmother in distant Laredo for discipline and perspective

There, Maria is told an ancient story of young Yana Wana, who followed a revered deer to find water and save her people

Yana Wana’s story exposes an amazing and unknown ancestral connection to the bluebonnet that gives Maria a renewed sense of self and family pride

Audiences are drawn to Maria’s tumultuous relationship with her Coahuiltecan grandmother, delighted by dances of the ancestors, and transformed by the five original native language songs

A beautiful, original play that illustrates the power of ancestral heritage and offers a seldom-seen glimpse into the timeless spirituality of Indigenous people
