Sangam Arts has been awarded $10,00 to create and launch “Hummingbird Circle” – a collaboration with Confederation of Ohlone People. This free, participatory event will debut at San Jose’s St. James Park in late Spring 2020. Culture-bearers will share the Ohlone way-of-life through storytelling, regalia-making, and dance. Audience members will learn about historical and living traditions by making grass-skirts and necklaces. Participatory finale dances will pay tribute to Nature, honor Ohlone descendants, and celebrate the gathering of past and current inhabitants of the land; creating a timeless bridge.
