The National Endowment for the Arts is helping fund the production of a play about going back in time to kill Christopher Columbus.
The agency recently awarded $10,000 to the Borderlands Theater, which views people living near or on the U.S. border as citizens of the world, for the production entitled Shooting Columbus.
A collaborative effort between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Arizona artists will combine elements from interviews with tribal elders and community members with movement, media, and traditional theater for a site-based, immersive, interactive performance, according to a grant for the project. The guest artists are members of the Shooting Columbus Collective, a group of artists of diverse ethnic backgrounds.

A better play would be about going back in time to slit Karl Marx’s throat.
I’m looking forward to the taxpayer-funded play imagining going back in time to assassinate Karl Marx.
Even better would be going back in time and dispatching Mohammed in his youth.
Or going back in time and killing Obama’s mother.
I’ll get Arnold on that right away.
NEA - Time for them to go!
Beat me to it!
A better one would be going back in time and catching MLK in the act of plagiarizing his PhD thesis.
Or going back in time and giving Obamas mother a condom...
If Columbus hadn’t discovered it someone else eventually would. It would have given the Indians more time to kill one another.
I get tired of hearing all the crap about how the Indians were so peaceful and loving. They were not much different than other cultures. Loved their own and killed other tribes.
The founder of my college, Dr. Warren Carroll, was a historian and an active member of the group trying to get Columbus canonized. The goofs would not have liked him.
Columbus was a contractor for the Hispanic conquest of the Americas.
This aggrieved group will have to take up their grievance with that aggrieved group. They can then compare grievances.
Ok so you kill Columbus, not like there were any other explorers. smh...
The NEA needs to go away.
Who capitalizes “indigenous”?
Had American aborigines the political organization and ships, they would just as naturally have attempted the conquest of Europe.
This latest bit is just more primitivism.
Arizonans are Arizonans and Americans, NOT citizens of the world!!!!
PHOOEY to globalism!!!!
Had there been no Colmunbus, do folks really believe America would have lain undiscovered and unexploited by Europeans forever after?
If the whites left the natives alone, America would likely resemble Africa today:
Different tribes gunning each other down with cheap modern weapons. Famines and no infrastructure due to the endless wars
Why don’t we kill off Karl Marx instead?
We’d save 60m off the top by averting stalin and lenin
and the progressive push for abortion wouldn’t exist... so there’s another 55m
Plus all the wars based around communism and the ideologies pushing left... which includes fascism (Nazism). Maybe ww2 wouldn’t have happened
