Billy MerastyThe Ottawa Citizen, theatre writer Michael Groberman interviewed Daniel: ‘In the case of this new play, Moses says he is “investigating the nature of romantic story-telling. One way racism has worked is that native people have been romanticized into absurdity, and on the other hand denigrated. This play examines both these things.” ’ (Sept. 18, 1991)

Review in THEATRUM (February/March 1992) by Eleanor Crowder ‘It’s hard to imagine a follow-up to the tragic reverberations of the death scene (in the first act). So Moses does the unimaginable and drops us into a nightmare black and white replay of the Whites and Indians story…..it tells a white audience that there are levels of anger and pain here not readily accessible to their understanding……This production left me with moments to resonate for some time to come.’
