Flying Bird's Diary

About the Show

By Melissa Tantquidgeon Zobel
Directed by Madeline Sayet

The story of a true Connecticut hero, Flying Bird aka Fidelia Fielding/Jeets Bodernashor (1827-1908). We first encounter Flying Bird, as a young Mohegan girl, in the 1800s, in a world attempting to erase everything she believes in. As the years pass, Flying Bird faces seemingly impossible obstacles but never loses sight of her goal: to save her language and culture against all odds.
