Cultural Transmissions: We Are Still Here is a conversation with We Are Still Here (WASH) artists; Ray Janis, Missy Whiteman, and Sheldon Starr moderated by WASH mentor artist, Jonathan Thunder. In conjunction with newly released artwork by the WASH cohort, this conversation will explore the content and themes behind the artists’ new digital artworks in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
Cultural transmissions facilitate how behaviors are developed and traditions are formed. During the month of November, we celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. The artists of the Hennepin Theatre Trust and All My Relations Arts, We Are Still Here cohort, have created work that challenges the audience to disrupt the cultural transmissions embedded in traditions around Thanksgiving, celebrate the contemporary presence of Native American dancers and musicians, and offers a call for healing through truth and reconciliation.
