Yale University Art Gallery “Performance, Evoking Ancestral Memory”

April 14, 2022 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
Janet Sullivan

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. Generously sponsored by the Yale Department of the History of Art, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, the Yale Group for the Study of Native America, the Yale Native American Cultural Center, and the Yale University Art Gallery’s Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
