Monique Mojica (Guna and Rappahannock nations) actor/ playwright /artist-scholar Monique is passionately dedicated to a theatrical practice as acts of healing, of reclaiming historical/ cultural memory and resistance. Spun directly from the family-web of New York’s Spiderwoman Theater, her first play Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots was produced in 1990. She is the co-editor, with Ric Knowles, of Staging Coyote’s Dream An Anthology of First Nations Drama in English, vols. I & II.

A co-founder of Turtle Gals Performance Ensemble, Monique has taught Indigenous Theatre in theory, process and practice at the University of Illinois, the Institute of American Indian Arts and at McMaster University. Monique is former Artistic Director of Native Earth Performing Arts, and the editor of a special issue of Canadian Theatre Review on Native theatre. Monique was seen as Caesar in Death of a Chief, Native Earth’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. She founded Chocolate Woman Collective in 2007 to develop the play Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way that premiered in June 2011 and was created by devising a dramaturgy specific to Guna cultural aesthetics, story narrative and literary structure.

She was most recently seen on stage in the re-mount of Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way presented by Native Earth Performing Arts, The Talking Stick Festival and at the prestigious Krannert Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois. Also seen in the role of Goneril in the NAC’s production of King Lear. Upcoming projects include Side Show Freaks & Circus Injuns co-written with Choctaw novelist, poet and scholar, LeAnne Howe and in collaboration with an illustrious team of Indigenous artists from diverse cultures and artistic disciplines.
