Join the Yale University Art Gallery and Center for Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM) for a performance by Hawk Henries, introduced by and in conversation with Royce K. Young Wolf.
Hawk Henries is an artist, composer, and flute musician of the Chaubunagungamaug band of Nipmuc. Hawk expertly crafts Eastern Woodlands flutes through ancestral and contemporary techniques. In this musical performance, Hawk presents his craft of flute making and shares his inspiring flute compositions. He utilizes music and storytelling, with a note of humor, to weave a calm, engaging, and thought-provoking experience. His transformative performances create contemplative spaces for unity and meaningful reflection on how we each have the capacity to make change in the world.
Royce K. Young Wolf (Eastern Shoshone, Hidatsa, and Mandan), the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Associate in Native American Art and Curation and Yale University Presidential Visiting Fellow, introduces the program and moderates the discussion to follow.
