Role Description

Soldier/Se Ket-Tu-May-Qua: (Supporting) Se-Ket-Tu-May-Qua is a Lenape warrior—and a warrior in every sense of the word, loyal, selfless, brave, draws criticism from the community for continuing to trade with the White settlers, and for adopting some of their ways. While his behavior is perceived as assimilation by those in his community, in truth, he is learning the settlers’ game in order to help his people survive. He is complicit in the “sale” of Manahatta to the settlers, and the guilt he feels as a result of his inadvertent participation motivates him to protect his community as a way to atone for his past wrongs. Also plays a young soldier in the present day, a citizen of the Delaware Tribe in Bartlesville, returning from a tour of duty in Iraq and visiting Manhattan for the first time.
