New York Folklore

Some photos from this weeks/'programs at the Erie Canal Museum as part of the Water/Ways Traveling exhibit - a program of the Smithsonian's Museum on Main Street. The traveling exhibition is a program brought by support by the Museum Association of New York. Folk Arts Programming in six locations are supported by New York Folklore, through grants from NYSCA via the Regional Economic Development Council and Governor Andrew Cuomo and the National Endowment for the Arts. The program on Saturday, 8/1, was focused on the Haudenosaunee Water Drum with maker Adrian John and music and dance presentations by Chris Thomas and his Smoke Dancers. The August 6th performance focused on the importance of water to Syria and the Middle East. #Wateways #MANY #Museumonmainstreet ... See MoreSee Less

New York Folklore

New York Folklore Director, Ellen McHale, spent July 11th through 24th traveling with John McKeeby of the Schoharie River Center and 3 students (Audra Williams and Conor Landrigan of Utica College and Sal Gallo of Syracuse University) to the Republic of Kyrgyzstan on a cultural heritage exchange. Throughout the six months' exchange, we interacted with a group of 30 teens and young adults to explore folk culture and intangible cultural heritage in the contexts of the Mohawk Valley of New York State and the Alay Valley of southern Kyrgyzstan, virtually and in person. It was an incredible and enriching experience! A few or the photos from the experience are posted here. #culturalbridge #discoveryourworld #worldlearning #communitiesconnectingheritage #youthofosh ... See MoreSee Less
