Folklore in Honor of Water

As diverse as cultures are throughout the world, one common theme that most traditional cultures have is the respect for water as a life giving force. In the last few years, we have seen many people disregard the value of clean drinking water, and this has resulted in our people becoming ill. The fight for Standing Rock reminded us that we must honor Mother Earth and thank her for the Water she provides which gives us nourishment and rejuvenation. On this year’s Earth Day Weekend, please join us to take a moment to pay tribute to water and to show the interconnectedness of traditional communities in how we realize water is vital to our existence. On April 21, 2017 from 6-8pm, PANDOS will be presenting “Folklore In Honor of Water”. Different performers will present dance, music, or storytelling that specifically highlight the reverence of water in traditional cultures. Some of the cultural traditions that will be represented include Bolivia, India, Afro Brazilian , Native American traditions, Haiti, Pacific Islanders, Ukrainian, African storytelling, and more. Parking is available underground or on the streets surrounding the library.
