Sewam American Indian Dance
Saturday, September 30 at 3:00 PM
Tickets: $25 and up
Sewam Dance is dedicated to sharing the highest quality meaningful, and culturally rich American Indian presentations to audiences everywhere. We share the art, culture and beauty of American Indian people through performance and education presentations, enriching participants’ understanding of American Indian cultural traditions, and celebrating the diversity of our varied communities.
This piece shares cultural histories, dances, and songs that are appropriate to share in spaces such as powwow and other community gatherings. In this specialized program audiences experience rich oral narratives, come to understand meanings of dances, cultural history, lifestyle, arts, and participate in building awareness and connections across diverse communities.
It is important for audiences to know that this program and sharing is not intended to speak for all Native American/American Indian peoples and cultures. We share in good protocol, with the intention of creating a first step in building awareness and connections to the rich, beautiful, and diverse lifeways of Indigenous peoples around the world.
