Tuesday’s lunchtime crowd got some lessons in Native American dance and culture, courtesy of the Redhawk Native American Arts Council/Dance Troupe.
Our thanks to Bill Lescohier for this colorful slide show:
As Morris Arts explains:
The Redhawk Native American Arts Council is a not for profit organization founded and maintained by Native American artists and educators based in NYC since 1994.
Dedicated to educating the general public about Native American heritage through song, dance, theatre, works of art and other cultural expressions, the Redhawk Council draws its artists from indigenous peoples of North, South, and Central America, the Caribbean and Polynesia, sharing both historical and contemporary aspects of Native cultures.
Producing four of the largest Native American heritage celebrations in the Northeast, the Troupe has performed for the President of the United States, at Woodstock, the Apollo Theatre, and Dance Theater of Harlem and appeared on such TV shows as Good Day New York and Regis & Kathy Lee, among others.
Next up: Féraba (West African dance, drumming and tap dancing) on July 25, 2017, and the Music from China Trio on Aug. 8.
