Keeping Alive Endangered Indigenous Languages
Thursday, October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmNo cost to participate
Join Z Puppets for the launch of STAR TURTLE, a musical adventure with a Turtle & Wabbit into the Cherokee language. View the first episode of this family-friendly Cherokee futurism web series and then take part in the discussion by guest activists, educators and artists about creative approaches to revitalizing Native American languages.
Z Puppets’ Creative Director Chris Griffith is a member of the Cherokee Nation who has been creating performances in response to the Cherokee Tribes’ declaration of emergency for their language. Chris and Z Puppets’ Co-Creative Director Shari Aronson will share highlights of Z Puppets’ web series and live touring shows, Say It! Sing It! Play It! In Cherokee and Star Turtle. At this critical time for the language, audiences see, hear and even sing along with Cherokee words.
Joining Z Puppets for a conversation will be their collaborators Hapistinna Graci Horne, Dakota/Lakota Curator and Storykeeper of Mnisota Native Artists Alliance and JW Webster, Cherokee Nation Language Educator.
Tune in for and share unique insights and approaches to activating Indigenous languages.
