Artist Performance: Shigeyuki Kihara @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Artist Performance: Shigeyuki Kihara @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

“salt 8″ featured artist Shigeyuki Kihara will perform her iconic solo dance, which draws on the classical Samoan taualuga to retell the cultural legacy of colonialism in Samoa from an indigenous perspective. Kihara is a prominent artist born in Samoa and based in New Zealand; her work investigates the complexities of cultural identity, colonialism, representation, gender roles, and spirituality through performance, photography, and video. Kihara’s work is featured in the salt gallery, as well as inserted into the UMFA’s Pacific Island galleries in the Dolores Doré Eccles and Frank Sanguinetti Exhibition Wing—a photographic intervention meant to stimulate dialogue among the objects.

Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom
Apr 19 all-day
Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom

The Inter-Tribal Student Association hosts its 42nd traditional powwow on Saturday, April 19 at the U’s Olpin Student Union. This year’s theme is “Sustaining Our Culture.”

The powwow is an excellent opportunity for communities to come together and join in dance and song.

“This is a long and proud tradition at the U,” says Octavio Villalpando, associate vice president for Equity & Diversity. “It is a wonderful way for the U to support American Indian students and community, honor their contributions and help others learn about their history and culture.”

Day’s Events:

9 a.m. — Registration

11 a.m. — Arena Blessing

Noon — Grand Entry

5 p.m. — Dinner Break

6 p.m. — Grand Entry

10 p.m. — Closing Song

Participants

Host Drum: Midnite Express

Master of Ceremonies (MC): Tyson Shay

Arena Director: Nino Reyes

Spiritual Advisor: Bob Taylor

Head Man: Patrick Willie

Head Woman: Miss American Indian Woman Scholar 2014 (to be announced)

Color Guard: Utah Intertribal Veterans Association

Powwow Etiquette

1. Always stand respectfully during special songs. These include the Grand Entry, flag songs, veteran’s songs or any other song the MC designates. During these songs, men should remove their hats.

2. Pay extra attention to the MC for various announcements about the event and type of dances.

3. Ask permission before taking photos of dancers in regalia. If the photo is for publication or commercial use, this should be explained before the photo is taken.

4. The correct term for a dancer’s outfit is regalia, not costume. Never touch a dancer’s regalia. Many of the ornaments have religious meaning and are cherished family heirlooms.

5. If you see a lost or dropped feather, do NOT pick it up. Notify the nearest staff member, veteran, Head Man Dancer or Arena Director immediately.

6. Pointing with the fingers is considered poor manners by some tribes. If you must point, use your head and nod in the direction you wish to indicate.

7. Feel free to join in the inter-tribal dances by invitation of the MC.

8. Do not ever cross the arena floor! Do not go into drum circles. Stay on the perimeter. If a drum group is singing or about to sing, do not approach the drum.

9. Last of all, powwows are meant to be social events. Make a new friend, eat some food, visit the vendors… have a great time!

If you have any questions about any of the above etiquette or would like to know more, please ask an ITSA member. Also, most dancers, singers, elders and staff are happy to help.
