Our 3rd Grade class will visit the Flynn to see "Ty Defoe: Native American Culture Revealed".
Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe (Giizhig) is a multidisciplinary cultural artist from the Oneida and Ojibwe Tribes. Joined by dancers of other tribal ancestries in magnificent and authentic handmade regalia, Ty and friends share Native American folklore and teachings through vibrant traditional storytelling, dance, and music played on several indigenous instruments. A highlight of the presentation is the breathtaking sacred hoop dance, in which Ty weaves in and out of as many as 30 swirling hoops as a symbol of humanity’s interdependence. This interactive celebration of ancient cultures promotes messages of peace and unity.
