Register for Waila: The O’odham Social Dance Tradition with Angelo and Ronald Joaquin
This lecture is the third event in this year’s IARC speaker series. About the series:
Rise: 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.
