About the event
We are all connected in this great circle of life. In a circle there are no corners in which
to hide, and in this circle unifying all living things, we must stand next to and across from each other as equals. Healing, celebrating, telling together, though our stories differ.
Celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day with Grammy Award–winning composer, 2021 Helen Merrill award-winning playwright, librettist, interdisciplinary artist, actor, choreographer, eagle dancer, and hoop dancer Ty Defoe (Giizhig). Ty, who is from the Oneida and Ojibwe Nations, interweaves artistic projects with social justice, indigeneity, trans rights, Indigi-Queering, and environmentalism. He will be joined by multiple other artists including Grammy-nominated cellist/vocalist/composer and world music artist Dawn Avery, vocalist, actress, percussionist, and choreographer Joan Henry, actor Jake Hart, Eagle Project theater company founder Opalanietet, and actor Tanis Parenteau, among others.
