Yana Wana's Legend of the Bluebonnet

Event at Dallas Children's Theater

Time Price
Fri-Sun, 12am - 11:59pm
Tickets from $17

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

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

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

You may have read one version in school; now DCT invites you to come see the legend through the eyes of Yana Wana in this world premiere.

The beautiful, original play illustrates the power of heritage and the value of one's own story - especially one as ancient as the petroglyphs of Texas.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
