Art & Wine Festival
September 15, 2007
This year, for the first time,
Indigenous performed at Santa Clara's Art & Wine Festival.
Indigenous led off the Meadow Stage performances in Central
Park kicking off the first day of the 2-day festival.
Indigenous chose its AmerIndian theme on
Saturday morning telling the story of a clan of Tribal Women connecting with
the Spirits through ceremony, music and dance. A big "Thank You" to Santa
Clara for the opportunity to perform and to the audience for the
appreciative words after the show. Another big thanks to David Martin for
these action photos of
Village Storytellers dance the Legend of the Eagle Women
Bahira, dancing as The Raven, Trickster to the People
The Raven calls forth the Tribe makes them dance like birds.
The Story ends with a salute to the Great Spirit, The Thunderbird.
Bahira drums an accompaniment to the final celebration of song and music.
See you next year!
