"Two hundred and seventy million acres of stolen Native American land — 10 percent of the country — given to white people for free." Even if you've heard this description of the Homestead Act, you've never been challenged to think about it via spoken-word poetry, acting, dance and hip-hop. Unless, that is, you've seen Ariel Luckey perform already. His earnest, energetic and passionate traveling solo show, Freeland, follows a young white man learning a very hard history lesson, and UCCS hosts it for free at 6 tonight at Berger Hall (University Center, 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy., freelandproject.com). Dessert reception to follow. — Kirk Woundy
