CANCELLED: An American Celebration of Grandmother Earth

Traditional Native American storytelling is deeply rooted in the earth – honoring all life, especially the plants and animals we depend on. Years upon years of a kinship with the land, life, water and sky has lead to intimate connections to the earth and a relationship of give and take with the natural world. Kevin Locke, visionary Hoop Dancer, preeminent player of the indigenous Northern Plains flute, storyteller, cultural ambassador, recording artist and educator leads an ensemble of multi-talented performers in an uplifting evening of storytelling interwoven with traditional Native American music and dramatic dance elements. Featuring music from Locke’s 2009 Nammy (Annual Native American Music Awards) award-winning album “Earth Gift” this world-premiere event will empower and energize us all to become stewards of our surroundings, preserving our world for posterity and encourage us to live together as part of the Universal heartbeat.
