Celebrating Native American Heritage at Hopkins
Reuben Fast Horse will give a performance titled "Celebrating Native American Heritage: Native American Dance and Music" at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 17, in Shriver Hall on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.
Born on the Standing Rock Sioux (Lakota) Reservation, Fast Horse now resides on the reservation at Fort Yates, N.D., and is certified by the Lakota tribe and the North Dakota State Board of Education as an "eminent scholar." He is a traditional Lakota singer, dancer, flutist, drummer, craftsman, storyteller and educator. He performs traditional songs in the Lakota, Ojibway, Dine, and Blackfoot languages and shares with the audience his knowledge and First Nation perspective. During his appearance, Fast Horse will also include rarely performed Buffalo and Eagle dances from the Lakota culture. He has performed at the Kennedy Center, the University of Massachusetts campuses at Lowell and at Amherst, and the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center in Florida.
This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series, presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, and is cosponsored with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
