ECHO Native American Storytellers
Description:
Each year, Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations (ECHO) brings its Performing Arts Festival to communities across America. Native and non-Native artists from the ECHO partner regions of Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Massachusetts come together to create a performance piece that shares their cultural traditions. This year's performance Celebrate -- Song, Dance & Story! takes us on a journey down life's paths, from childhood to love and marriage and beyond. Through these songs, dances, and stories of challenges and triumphs, we learn the cultural values of these communities -- whether about respect for ancestral ways or the dangers of jealousy and vanity. Visit www.echospace.org closer to the time of the event for a calendar of appearances, pre-and post-visit curriculum materials and performance video. Performed on February 25, 2011 at the National Museum of the American Indian.
