Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 37th Annual Dance Concert and Pow-Wow

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 04-02-2012 04-02-2012 15 Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 37th Annual Dance Concert and Pow-Wow The troupe will present dances, stories, and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Proceeds from the pow-wow will go toward college funds for needy Native American students. Highlights will include storytelling, a Hoop Dance by a Cherokee tribe member, a Caribou Dance by the Inuit people of Alaska, a Buffalo Dance by the Hopi people, a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance by the Northern Plains people, a Stomp Dance by the Southeastern tribes, and a Shawl Dance by the Oklahoma tribes. Featured performers will include the Heyna Second Son Singers (from various tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. Most dances are performed in the traditional Circle, which represents a unity of peoples. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than 10 distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's director and emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American craft items will be displayed in the TNC lobby. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers Scholarship Fund receives its sole support from events like this concert (it receives no government or corporate contributions). It has bestowed more than 350 scholarships to-date. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=101666 Theater for the New City true DD/MM/YYYY
