In 1846, there was a slave revolt inside Sutter’s Fort. All the Native slaves were rescued, including Sutter’s favorite slave girl, My-Koolay. His anger and rage led to threats of genocide. Hence an honorable betrayal by one of Sutter’s Nisenan soldiers, Mosus, pitted one brother against the other to save their tribe from being eliminated.
This Native American Musical based on actual historical events, focuses on the untold story of how Natives were slaves under Johann Sutter’s Mexican reign.
