Nodutdol views Korea as our homeland. As Koreans living in the U.S., we recognize the intervening role that U.S. imperialism and militarism has played and continues to play on the Korean peninsula. From that recognition, we embrace our own role in ending the Korean War and building peace in our homeland.
Nodutdol recognizes that we live in a settler-colonial state and that our work is carried out on stolen Lenni Lenape land. We also recognize that for Korea to be truly decolonized, we must decolonize here.
Korea Education and Exposure Program
The mission of KEEP is to increase awareness of and strengthen the global movement for peace and justice on the Korean peninsula and in North America. Through building relationships and communities, KEEP seeks to broaden our understanding of and participation in the liberation struggles and unification of the Korean people.
Oral History Project
Nodutdol’s Oral History Project (OHP) operated from 2012 to 2017. During this time, the OHP held 2 performances, one about the Gwangju Uprising and the other about the Korean War. Based on oral history interviews with Korean elders who lived through the Korean war, the OHP sought to recenter ordinary experiences and contest the popular understanding of the war in the United States.
