ESTE CATE (pronounced stuh-jaw-duh) is Mvskoke for “Indian” and is an interweaving of six Native stories that attempts to disrupt the notion of a Native “stasis.” Este Cate, as a performance towards Native resurgence, pushes into, through, and beyond this stasis into an emergent and unconventional Native thriving.
