PANDOS - Folklore in Honor of Water
As diverse as cultures are throughout the world, one common theme that most traditional cultures have is the respect for water as a life giving force. In the last few years, we have seen many people disregard the value of clean drinking water, and this has resulted in our people becoming ill. The fight for Standing Rock reminded us that we must honor Mother Earth and thank her for the Water she provides which gives us nourishment and rejuvenation.
On this years Earth Day Weekend, please join us to take a moment to pay tribute to water and to show the interconnectedness of traditional communities in how they realize water is vital to existence.
On April 21, 2017 from 6-8pm, PANDOS will be presenting Folklore In Honor of Water at the Downtown Salt Lake City Library on 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT.
Different performers will present dance, music, or poetry that specifically highlights the reverence of water in traditional cultures. Some of the cultural traditions that will be presented include performances from India, Afro Brazilian Condumble, Native American traditions, Pacific Islanders, Poland, and Ukrainian traditions, African storytelling, and more.
