As flechas de Olowaili: o som, o movimento e a cultura Guna em Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots por Monique Mojica

Daniel Wayne Hopkins

Resumo


Este artigo examina o drama Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots (1991), da dramaturga Guna Rappahannock, Monique Mojica, utilizando um enfoque sobre a cultura e a linguagem dos indígenas Guna para demonstrar que Mojica inclui a linguagem e elementos Gunano em seu drama que outros críticos anteriormente ignoraram. Considerando a arte de costurar as molas (uma vestimenta tradicional Guna), as histórias da tradição oral Guna lado a lado das histórias pessoais de sua família, o seu nome Guna, Olowaili e teorias do drama, é possível concluir que sua obra é muito mais autobiográfica do que tem pensado. Mojica não somente conta as histórias das outras mulheres indígenas afetadas pela colonização, como anteriormente sugerido em outras leituras críticas, ela inclui suas próprias conexões com a história e a cultura Guna para recriar sua identidade como mulher indígena Guna.
