The First Americans Museum (FAM) collaborated with tribal communities to bring to life an authentic telling of tribal origin stories in an immersive theater environment, designed by Batwin + Robin Productions, that allows audiences to experience stories that take place in all realms. Engaging tribal members from concept to completion and every aspect of production allowed for authentic storytelling in which tribes were able to share their origin stories in their own unique and unexpected way.
