Amalia Vasquez, a student at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, performed in “Trickster Tales,” a new play of American Indian stories by Kelley Zinge, during the college’s Raider Days homecoming celebration Oct. 5-6.
Vasquez is a junior and is majoring in psychology at Northwestern. She is the daughter of Claudia Vasquez of Hood River.
Northwestern theatre professor Dr. Robert Hubbard is directing the cast of 10 actors who will play multiple roles, including animals who often are tricksters in Native American lore: the coyote, fox, otter, rabbit, raccoon, raven and spider.
“The stories have a parable quality,” said Hubbard. “Audience members learn what not to do as they watch — and laugh at — what the trickster does.”
