This pre-gold rush era rock opera, based on actual historical events, focuses on the untold story of how Natives were slaves under Johann Sutter's Mexican reign. Slave hunters scoured Northern California to supply Sutter with young native girls and boys. With 24 awards including a Native American Music Award, this musical will begin airing on PBS on Oct. 28, 2023.
