TUE, JUNE 30
Poetry and visual art by Mashpee Wampanoag poet, artist, and author Robert Peters will come to life in an original, multi-media performance. This premiere performance features Peters’ poetry/art collection “Thirteen Moons,” which evolved through the artist’s personal journey to reclaim traditional culture and to live in a way consistent with his traditional beliefs. A choral reading of the “Thirteen Moons” poetry collection will set the stage for a conversation with Peters and other Indigenous artists. Topics considered will include humans’ relationship with the natural world, the meaning of “home” from a Native perspective, and the contributions of Indigenous voices to justice and democracy building today.
