  • Hiawatha by Catskill Puppet Theatre | Young Audiences New Jersey


Hiawatha, a curious young boy, decides to disobey his grandmother and seek a vision alone in the forest. There he finds a sacred cave and enters a magical world full of talking animals and fantastic spirits! He meets a wise Mohawk, called The Peacemaker, who teaches him a wonderful lesson. At last, with the help of his friends Bear and Turtle, Hiawatha discovers the pathway he must follow to become a great man! Based on the life of the great Iroquois hero Hiawatha, this play features full sets, exquisitely crafted puppets, and an accompaniment by Native American flute and drum recordings.
