Vibrina Coronado’s (Lumbee Tribe of NC) work encompasses arts and cultures. Her theatrical work includes designing and making costumes, puppets, and sets, and writing, producing, and directing plays. In 2019, she worked on several projects. “Voices of the Earth Short Play Festival” staged a version of her play Borders at Bemiji State University in Minnesota. She designed and supervised the building of costumes and sets for Suessical TYA at Methodist University and helped develop and build large puppets for Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s We Are Here. She produced and directed a reading of Made In God’s Image by Barbara Collins, with a panel discussion, at University of North Carolina Pembroke. She led Recovery Stories, a writing group for people in recovery in Robeson County. In addition to developing material based on the Indians routing the Ku Klux Klan from Robeson County, NC in 1958, Coronado is writing a script about getting scissors sharpened and gathering material on the history and significance of Indian fry bread. In the back of her mind, she explores how to use performance to heal trauma and aid in conflict resolution.
