Wales Smithsonian Cymru

Introduction:
The small country of Wales sets an example of sustainable culture that links history and tradition to the latest alternative technologies, thereby providing a focus for the 2009 Festival program, Wales Smithsonian Cymru. A spectrum of sustainability stretches throughout the history of Wales and into the future - continuing, preserving, and reviving older environmental practices as well as creating new ones. This continuum connects people within communities, regions, and nations, starting at the local level and radiating out around the globe.

While doing research for the 2009 Festival program, fieldworkers sought four types of sustainability relating to traditional culture in Wales: 1) keeping the best of traditional practices; 2) recycling in the broadest sense; 3) thinking globally, acting locally; and 4) planning for a sustainable future. They documented music and dance; storytelling; occupational skills such as farming and mining; the building arts; industrial heritage; outdoor pursuits; maritime arts; textile, ceramics, and wood crafts; and cooking, gardening, and traditional medicine. The four core sustainability concepts helped the fieldworkers make connections among genres, regions, and the skills and talents of potential participants, informing the program throughout its development.

The results of this collaboration were available for Festival visitors to enjoy on the National Mall.In addition to a rich program of music, dance, and oral traditions, visitors could interact with Welsh tradition-bearers to explore and experience topics such as Welsh genealogy; wood, stone, metal, clay, wool, and basketry crafts; plants and traditional medicine; maritime, sports, and ecotourism; renewable energy and sustainable building workshops (highlighting three sustainable structures); and more.

Betty J. Belanus was Curator; Dorey Butter was Program Coordinator; Beverly Simons was Foodways Coordinator; and Kim Stryker was Family Learning Coordinator. A Curatorial Committee in Wales included: Teri Brewer and Gareth Evans; Peter Finch and colleagues; Eluned Haf; Angharad Pearce Jones, Rocet Arwel Jones, and Rhydian Griffiths; Tecwyn Vaughan Jones; Lesley-Anne Kerr; Dai Lloyd and Andy Williams; Ceri Rhys Matthews; Andy Middleton; Dafydd Roberts; Beth Thomas; Dan Thomas; Siân Thomas; and Moira Vincentelli. The program's Steering Committee comprised: Gary Davies, Ifona Deeley, Nick Capaldi, Keven Higgins, Paul Allen, Linda Tomos, Wynfford James, Paul Islwyn Thomas, Mike Hnyda, Andrew Green, Michael Houlihan, Eirlys Thomas, and Virginia West.

The program was produced in partnership with the Welsh Assembly Government. Donors included Alzeim Ltd., BioPharm, Neal's Yard Remedies, Summit (Wales) Ltd., and Caligo Inks. Additional contributions were provided by the St. David's Welsh-American Society of Washington, D.C., St. David's Society of Racine & Vicinity, the Welsh Society of Philadelphia, the St. David Welsh Society of St. Petersburg and the Suncoast, and Roger W. Hughes.

Bhutan: Land of the Thunder Dragon

Introduction:
The Bhutan program at the 2008 Festival was the largest and most comprehensive celebration of Bhutanese life and culture ever presented outside of the kingdom. One hundred and fifty Bhutanese participants provided Festival visitors an unparalleled opportunity to see, hear, touch, smell, and experience life in the "Land of the Thunder Dragon."

The program started each Festival morning with an elaborate ceremonial procession to honor important guests. Accompanied by blaring monastic trumpets and framed by the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, and dozens of fluttering colorful prayer flags, the Bhutanese participants proceeded to the Bhutanese temple, where each day they recognized the chief guests. Festival audiences enjoyed Bhutanese music and dance, arts and crafts, spiritual and religious traditions, traditional medicine, food, storytelling, and recreational activities. Every day, live reports were sent to Bhutan to broadcast on Bhutan's national television station.

Bhutan's thirteen traditional arts were presented in a shaded area near the temple, where visitors could mingle with some of the country's finest weavers, painters, sculptors, carvers, cooks, and other artists. Under the trees, visitors also encountered an ancient box of many doors representing the Buddha's understanding of the many paths to enlightenment and a chanter who called people to ponder the box's mysteries. Traditional yak herders from the highlands welcomed guests into their yak-hair tent and entertained them with stories and lively antics. Nearby, some of Bhutan's best cooks shared their stories about food in Bhutan around a traditional clay stove. Practitioners of Bhutanese traditional medicine also shared ancient Buddhist teachings and their knowledge of the many natural compounds found in Bhutan's flora and fauna.

The Four Friends Stage, named after a Bhutanese tale that celebrates social and environmental harmony, was the gathering place for lively discussions about traditions and contemporary issues, including Bhutan's voluntary transition from absolute monarchy to democracy, the meaning of "Gross National Happiness" (an official government policy articulated by Bhutan's Fourth King), and the importance of environmental and cultural resources. The Tsechu Stage was the venue for Bhutanese music and dance traditions. Musicians, singers, and dancers from Bhutan's Royal Academy of Performing Arts demonstrated traditional Bhutanese folk dances, and Bhutanese monastic dancers performed sacred masked dances rarely seen outside of Bhutan.

Bhutanese hospitality was evident in the many activities designed for children and adults. With the help of Bhutanese children, families colored Bhutanese postage stamps and made prayer wheels. Archery, the country's national sport, was played daily. Bhutanese archers dazzled spectators by hitting a target the size of a breadbox nearly a football field away.

His Royal Highness Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck was Head of the Bhutan Delegation. Dorjee Tshering, Richard Kennedy, and Preston Scott constituted the Curatorial Team; while Damcho Rinzin and Arlene Reiniger were Program Coordinators. The Bhutan Curatorial/Production Committee included: Dorjee Tshering, Damcho Rinzin, Dorji Wangchuk, Dorji Wangchuk, Dorji Yangki, Lopen Gyeltshen, Jigme Cholen Yezer, Karma Dukpa, Phuntsok Tashi, Phurba Dorji, Sangay Wangchug, Singye Dorji, Singye Wangmo, Sonam Choden, Thinley Gyamtsho, and Thinley Wangchuk.

The program was produced in partnership with the Royal Government of Bhutan. Major Donors to the program were the Bhutan Department of Tourism and the Dancing Star Foundation.

Mali: From Timbuktu to Washington

Introduction:
The 2003 Mali program was an invitation to think about Mali and her important place in the wider world. Mali's influence in West Africa and beyond has been felt for centuries. But her regional, continental, and global connections are not just part of the past. The Festival program also demonstrated Malians' ongoing interest in actively forging new links worldwide.

From Timbuktu to Washington evolved over five years, from a wish and an idea to a fully developed and exciting program of musical performances and cultural activities. Planning was enhanced by the previous relationships, both personal and institutional, between the Smithsonian and Malian cultural institutions and was supported by the Malian government and U.S. agencies in Mali. Malian organizers thoughtfully deliberated about what to share with American visitors and determined how Malian culture in all its diversity should be represented.

Traditional music is a vibrant expression of Mali's cultural diversity and wealth. Each ethnic group and region is characterized by certain musical rhythms, instruments, and compositions - a tremendous diversity of which were reflected in the Festival program. Music is involved in all aspects of life, marking birth, work, marriage, religious ceremonies, and death. For the Malian people, music is fundamental and essential to life: it has a precise function and meaning, and it is inextricably linked to a set of doctrines, ideals, beliefs, and practices whose coherence constitutes the identity of each group. Since beliefs about music are often associated with beliefs about the origin of both music and the ethnic group that performs it, the perpetuation of music is a matter of considerable importance.

Malian crafts are a legacy from the past but also very much a part of the present - and the future. People generally think of crafts as the artistic expression of a civilization or culture, but they are much more. Crafts are an important economic resource for Malians, and in 1995 the government adopted a Craft Code to protect and develop craft activity, which the code defined as all basically manual extraction, transformation, or production of goods or services, in metalwork (such as tool-making and appliance repair), woodwork (from carpentry to paper-making), textile and leather work (such as tailoring and tanning), mining and building trades, food processing and preparation (from meat-cutting to milling grain), health and body care (from hairdressing to incense-making), as well as arts. Crafts encompass not only objects used in rituals and traditional ceremonies, but also objects used in daily life - all demonstrated for Festival visitors on the National Mall. Other presentations focused on Malian vernacular architecture, the building arts, and foodways.

Samuel Sidibé, Oumou Dembélé, Zakiyatou Halatine, Sina Maiga, Stephanie Diakité, Modibo Diarra, and Vanessa Adams constituted the Curatorial Board/General Festival Coordination in Mali; Mary Jo Arnoldi and John Franklin were the Curatorial Team; Aboubakar Sanogo was Program Coordinator; and Diana N'Diaye was Fashion Curator.

African Immigrant Folklife

Introduction:
Across the Washington metropolitan region, African immigrants actively redefine their ideas of tradition and community by creating institutions and events that draw on African expressive forms. African-born area residents establish language and culture schools where their American-born children learn the social and artistic skills of their ancestral homes. Family and friends come together to celebrate births, weddings, and other rites of passage. African immigrant entrepreneurs employ their knowledge of personal adornment and of the social needs of their home communities to serve fellow immigrants and other Washingtonians.

The Festival program explored several cultural dimensions: the use made of knowledge, skills, values, and expressive forms brought from home to construct new communities and identities; and the new traditions, growing from encounters with groups in the African Diaspora and in American society as a whole, that contribute to the rich cultural landscape of the United States.

As continental Africans living in the nation's capital region have increased in number, they have stamped their presence on the ethnic map and cultural calendar of the area. Africans present cultural programs, conferences, and forums about their communities. Using traditional skills and knowledge, African-born entrepreneurs develop services for immigrants and the community at large. African immigrants bring to America ideas of ethnic and region-based organizations that were devised when Africans flrst migrated from rural towns to urban centers in Africa. These patterns of organization continue in the United States. Community institutions sometimes use traditional forms of social organization like tontines - revolving credit and savings societies - other kinds of investment groups, burial societies, and town associations to get things done.

As African expatriates become immigrants, and as immigrants become citizens, they use aspects of traditional culture to maintain connections with their roots, affirm their identity, maintain positive self-images for their children, express their links to other African world people, and assert their unique contribution to their land of adoption. The multi-year Festival program sought to contribute, through its research and public presentations (see also the 1995 concert series that inaugurated the project), to greater understanding of the cultures and experiences of continental Africans living in the United States, and in particular to promote connection and collaboration between Africans in America and African Americans, between Washington's immigrants and its long-established populations.

Community Scholars and Curators included: Dagnachew Abebe, Veronica Abu, Ebo Ansa, Nomvula Cook, Abdirahman Dahir, T.V.

Forest, Field and Sea: Folklife in Indonesia

Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this

Archival materials
Introduction:
Indonesia is the fifth most populous country in the world with a population of over 180 million, a land of enormous cultural diversity with 300 distinct ethnic groups living on more than 1,000 islands distributed across 3,000 miles of ocean. How could the Festival approach such a complex nation and bring it to the National Mall?

Examples of cultural adaptations by people from three Indonesian provinces to vastly different environments were selected to provide an introduction to Indonesia's great diversity - Kenyah and Modang people living in the lowland and upland forests of East Kalimantan, Bugis and Makassarese maritime people living in coastal South Sulawesi, and rural Javanese and Madurese agriculturalists living in coastal and inland East Java. These communities displayed some of the indigenous skills and traditional knowledge that have developed in environments outside the urban centers and fertile river valleys of the Indonesian heartland. Together, these rich traditions are the expression of a civilization whose cultural sources - local, Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic - are as complex as any on earth.

Kenyah and Modang people of Kalimantan showed visitors how they have made life possible and meaningful in the rainforest. Festival-goers could witness their careful use of indigenous plants for medicine, trees for vernacular longhouses, and other forest products for aesthetic and religious practices. Buginese and Makassarese boatbuilders, seafarers, cooks, and silk makers demonstrated skills they use to live with and from the sea - the economic trade and natural bounty it has historically provided. And from East Java came village agriculturalists, rice farmers of that island's rich soil who have developed an intricate fabric of social, material, and performance arts. Performers from four artistic traditions came from East Java to the Festival, presenting peasant batik from Tuban on the north coast, which uses hand-woven cotton; masked dance-drama of Madura, based on stories from the Indian epics, Mahabharata and Ramayana; gandrung social dance of Banyuwangi; and the music and dance performance known as reyog from the region of Ponorogo on the western side of the Province.

Richard Kennedy was Curator of the program, with Uaporn Ang Robinson and Sal Murgiyanto as Program Coordinators and Katrinka Ebbe as Assistant Program Coordinator.

Forest, Field and Sea: Folklife in Indonesia was part of the Festival of Indonesia 1990-1991 and was made possible with the support of Yayasan Nusantara Jaya, Garuda Indonesia Airlines, and American President Lines.

Introduction:
Folklore is commonly identified by many people with rural settings, and New Jersey is basically urban, suburban, and industrial. There are indeed some rural areas in New Jersey - the truck farms of "the Garden State" and the Pine Barrens of South Jersey - but the former are fast disappearing and the latter survive only because they are preserved by the state. Most New Jerseyans live and work in the densely populated corridor that cuts across the mid-section of the state. But folklorists today recognize that there is also a folklore of the factory, a folklore of the city, and a folklore of ethnicity, and New Jersey provides a rich source for their study.

The streets of New Jersey's cities abound with traditional life as practiced for generations. One need only to walk through Hoboken or Bayonne to see children playing stick ball, hop scotch, and Double Dutch jump rope. New Jersey is populated by a large number of ethnic groups, many of which have clustered in city neighborhoods. There is a Cuban community in Union City, a Portuguese community in Newark, a Hungarian community in New Brunswick, and a Japanese community in rural Seabrook Farms. For many ethnic groups folk traditions are their symbols of identity. Their ethnicity is expressed in foodways, language, music, dance, and festivals (often in ethnic costume). Music such as Ukrainian trio music, once performed informally at weddings, is now formally presented on a stage at a public festival with dancers in folk costume. Craft traditions that used to be a vital part of rural economy in the mother country are now miniaturized and made into a hobby.

The 1983 Festival program brought a panoply of presentations from New Jersey to the National Mall, ranging from ethnic celebrations of African Americans, Japanese Americans, Italian Americans and others to craft demonstrations featuring skills and techniques of silk weaving, herbalism and glassblowing, and on to the diverse occupations associated with maritime trades and the sacred songs of menhaden fishermen.

The New Jersey Program was made possible through many generous corporate and private donations to Festival New Jersey '83!, a nonprofit corporation established and chaired by Governor Thomas H. Kean to fund New Jersey's participation in the 17th Annual Festival of American Folklife.

Sue Manos-Nahwooksy served as New Jersey Program Coordinator.
