Eastern Woodland Dances | June 22, 2022

Festival 2022 begins with a special celebration of Indigenous dancers, highlighting the breadth of Indigenous performance traditions of the Eastern Woodland region and its diaspora. The program will feature Warwick Gombey Troupe of Bermuda, who are of Wampanoag, Narragansett, Pequot, and Mohican ancestry; Acosia Red Elk (2022 Gathering of Nations Women’s Jingle Dress Champion), and Iroquois Traditional Dancers (Seneca).  The evening’s MC is Larry Spotted Crow Mann (Nipmuc). This program is an ongoing extension of the landmark 2019 event “The Land on Which We Dance,” which explored the histories of the land at Jacob’s Pillow.
