    Ancient Light: Indigenous Artways & Survivance

    12:00 pmElson S. Floyd Cultural Center & streaming via youtube

    In the midst of an epidemic on MMIW, in the midst of a global
    pandemic that has devastated Native communities, in the midst
    of tragic revelations of mass unmarked graves at boarding
    schools, why art? Why poetry, dance, or song? This program of
    picto-poems and poetry, will look at how Native Arts feed
    Indigenous Flourishing. Drawing on the work and statements of
    Indigenous artists from Joy Harjo to James Luna, touching on
    tribal traditions from the healing jingle dress dance to trickster
    antics to activist poetics, Anishinaabe writer and photographer
    Kimberly Blaeser will celebrate Indigenous arts and the role they
    play in building relatedness and teaching survivance.
