IARC 2020 Speaker Series header Cultural Preservation in the 21st Century

The School for Advanced Research’s Indian Arts Research Center presents a series of conversation-style presentations exploring today’s world of cultural preservation. Museums, artists, and communities are increasingly recognizing the need to elevate indigenous voices in the public’s understanding of traditional and evolving Native arts and culture. This year’s Speaker Series takes us on a journey beyond the Pueblo communities within which we are situated, to shed light on the many remarkable ways indigenous-based cultural preservation, promotion, and revival are happening nationally. Through the intimate conversations, this series celebrates and acknowledges the powerful work happening all around us. From indigenous language revitalization efforts, centuries old traditions in Alaska’s Alutiiq communities, or a changing contemporary art scene in Hawai’i, “Rise” asks how indigenous communities are coming together to ensure that their respective histories, arts, and cultures, are represented with respect and are able thrive and grow for future generations.

With Maile Andrade and Marques Hanalei Marzan

Maile Andrade, multi-media artist, professor at Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, and SAR’s 2012 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native artist fellow, joins Marques Hanalei Marzan, Hawaiian fiber artist and cultural advisor for Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Hawai’i for an open dialogue on the relevance and the changing world of indigenous visual art practices for contemporary Native Hawaiian artists. Art plays a key role in promoting cultural values and understanding for this and future generations. While they began as teacher and student, Andrade and Marzan continue to explore these issues as fellow artists and cultural educators.

“Come join us for this provocative conversation looking at ourselves as being the ancestors of tomorrow.” – Maile Andrade

Waila: The O’odham Social Dance Tradition

With Angelo and Ronald Joaquin

Why is it that Arizona’s Tohono O’odham Nation tribal members have been dancing to polkas, schottisches, and mazurkas since the 1800s? Join Angelo and Ronald Joaquin in a conversation exploring the Tohono O’odham social dance music known as waila and, sometimes, as “chicken scratch.” The style, which emerged out of European and Mexican origins, has been adapted to include traditions from Tohono O’odham culture. Angelo and Ronald are the sons of Angelo Joaquin Sr., founder of The Joaquin Brothers band, which culminated a 35-year career with a performance at New York City’s Carnegie Hall. Angelo is a co-founder of the Waila Festival in Tucson and Ronald is a musician and leader of the Southern Scratch band. The two will take the audience through two centuries of honoring this vital Tohono O’odham music tradition.

This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is encouraged.

Community Collaborations: Alaska Native Artistic Revitalization

With Sven Haakanson and Nadia Jackinsky Sethi

Sven Haakanson, curator of Native American Anthropology at Seattle’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture and Nadia Jackinsky Sethi, Program Officer for Alaska’s CIRI Foundation and Curatorial Consultant at the Alaska State Museum, reflect on ongoing collaborations between museums and indigenous communities in Alaska. As the jumping off point, the two explore an effort to bring back angyaat “open boats,” a culturally relevant style of boats whose fabrication techniques had been lost to Native communities from which they originated. Using a small selection of existing museum models and archival references, Sven and the community were able to reverse engineer the vessels. As Haakanson notes, “I have called this repatriating knowledge that was once forgotten and is now being reawakened once again through pieces from the past.”

This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is encouraged.
