It has been a really cool experience so far, the atmosphere here is something very special and different. To start the event off we are learning about some of these musicians, dancers, and artists up on the stage. They are being introduced by our professor, explaining all the things they have accomplished and done throughout their lives and what they are doing now. The women that are being introduced are very involved and really care about this event a lot. They are doing a drumming performance right now and showing us all the traditions that they have grown up and been through in their lives. They are explaining that these traditions are things that have been passed down from generation to generation. Now all of the people that have came here today are coming together and dancing as a group. They are about to show us a few of their dance traditions.
