Resistance, Resilience, Regeneration: A Meskwaki art and performance event

Friday, September 28th, 2018

Resistance, Resilience, Regeneration is an event of Meskwaki art and performance, both traditional and contemporary, that tells a story about how plant and human life compare in relation to how both have overcome adversity. It is about how young indigenous people have looked to their past to know where they are going in the future.

The event will consist of an art exhibition, poetry and literature readings, traditional and contemporary dances—all by up and coming Indigenous writers and Meskwaki dancers and artists.

Resistance, Resilience, Regeneration will take place Oct. 6 from 5–8 p.m. at the Harmon Fine Arts Center, 2505 Carpenter Avenue. The art exhibition will run from 5–7 p.m. in the Weeks Gallery, located on the second floor of the foyer in the Harmon Fine Arts Center. Performances will follow in the Center’s Performing Arts Hall.
