Story Circle: Weaving Culture and Community – Native Arts and Resilience

Festival Details - "Story Circle: Weaving Culture and Community – Native Arts and Resilience"...

Thursday, December 3, 2020, 3 – 3:45 pm

For many Native American communities, resilience has been key to sustaining their diverse cultures and treasured ways of life in the wake of disease, genocide, and other terrible realities wrought by centuries of colonialism and social injustice.

Join us in conversation with three inspiring Native artists and cultural leaders: Siletz basket maker and language teacher Alfred “Bud” Lane of Oregon, Hawaiian musician and singer Aaron J. Sala of Hawai?i, and Penobscot basket maker Theresa Secord of Maine. Together they share the creative ways in which they have met the many challenges posed by the pandemic and reflect on their increased sense of urgency to be “good ancestors,” working tirelessly to pass on their cultural knowledge to younger generations in their communities and taking action to bring about positive change at the institutional level in American society.
