All of Mrs. Arrowood's dance classes have been invited to attend a special performance about Cherokee culture on Monday, May 11th. Field trip forms and additional information will be going out later this week. For more information on who we are going to see perform, check out the information below.
The Warriors of AniKituhwa will share the rich and moving history of Cherokee dance, language and dress through their one hour performance. The Warriors of AniKituhwa have been recreating and persevering Cherokee dance since 2003 based on descriptions preserved in a 1762 manuscript. Named official ambassadors of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians by the Tribal Council, these talented dancers have been sharing the dance, history and culture of the Cherokee throughout the southeast.
LEAF Schools & Streets is delighted to share this wonderful opportunity to learn about Native American culture of Western North Carolina to the community. LEAF Schools & Streets has created curriculum for middle and high school teachers to supplement this “Informance” in order to make it an enriching experience for all of those involved!
