Poetry. With a historian's perspective and a journalist's eye, Micah Ling surveys the oppression of America's indigenous people and the imposition of the United States government upon them. These inequalities are then used to draw parallels to the current Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and subsequent crimes and inequity. Set in two acts with two casts of characters, from Marlon Brando to Leonard Peltier to Banksy, SETTLEMENT cries out against injustices while celebrating the human will to persevere.
