Tickets are now on sale for Life Lessons: A Gift from the Lakota to the World, an original multicultural, multimedia celebration of nine fundamental virtues, including honor, wisdom, truth, perseverance and love. In addition to three performances of the play, a group of Lakota artists will have an art sale and show, a hand-painted 14-foot teepee will be on display, and the author of The Lakota Way will offer a free leadership workshop and book signing.

Suitable for the entire family and featuring an international cast, Life Lessons will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 10, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, in Leach Theatre. Tickets are $6 each and are available in the Leach Theatre Box Office, located in the vestibule inside the main entrance to the theater, facing 10th Street. Tickets are available one hour before the performance and during regular box office hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 341-4219 for more information.
Lakota artists from South Dakota will display their work in the Leach Theatre lobby as part of Native American Heritage month. A reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, to kick off the show, which will run through Sunday, Nov. 11. The display is made possible through a partnership between S&T’s Miner League Theatre Players and Lakota Hope, a Christian ministry established by Bruce LaFluer.
The artists, a part of the Lakota Artists Guild, will bring star quilts, jewelry and paintings. Some of the items will be available for purchase. They will also erect a 14-foot teepee that was painted by renowned Lakota artist Joe Pulliam on the Castleman Hall lawn.
Joseph Marshall III, author of The Lakota Way, will be on the Missouri S&T campus Friday, Nov. 9, to lead a workshop based on his latest book, Return to The Lakota Way, at 1 p.m. in the Turner Room of the Havener Center. The free workshop is open to the public. Email to reserve a spot.
Marshall will sign his books at 7 p.m. in the Leach Theatre lobby prior to the 7:30 show on Friday, Nov. 9. He will also be available for a question-and-answer session at 9:30 p.m. in the lobby following the performance. The Missouri S&T Bookstore, located inside the Havener Center on campus, will have copies of his books in stock for purchase prior to the signing.
