Campus to celebrate National American Indian Heritage Month
Penn State York’s Cultural and Performing Artists Series continues when the Piscataway Indian Nation Singers and Dancers perform on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the campus’ Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center). In celebration of National American Indian Heritage Month, the group will present a living history program featuring authentic American Indian dance, drum, and songs. The performance is free and open to the public.
This internationally recognized four-person ensemble will not only perform but encourage questions, comments, discussion, and audience participation. The Piscataway Indian Nation Singers and Dancers have travelled throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States to present programs about American Indian culture, traditions, and contemporary issues. The group appeared in the movie Dances with Wolves and frequently contributes to programs on the History and Discovery channels. They appear regularly at the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian, national pow-wows, major festivals, and colleges and universities across the United States.
Penn State York’s Cultural and Performing Artists Series is sponsored by Penn State York and MediaOne PA.
