Join us Indigenous Peoples Day weekend to engage with and celebrate Kaniekehaka (Mohawk) music and culture. On October 8th Underwater Panther Coalition presents a musical celebration and benefit for the Mohawk Akwesasne Freedom School. The Akwesasne Freedom School is an exemplary model for how sovereign immersion schooling can maintain cultural resilience and restoration, while simultaneously providing for community needs in ways that are in accordance with the Kaniekehaka (Mohawk) Longhouse tradition. The event will feature living musical traditions in contemporary formation through performances by artists like Theresa Bear Fox and The Akwesasne Women Singers. Mohawk elder and faithkeeper Tom Porter will open the evening event. There will be an afternoon flute making workshop for children, in the Indigenous South American clay flute making tradition, led by Koyoltzintli.
