Tommy Orange will kick off the celebration with a reading from There There. Performances will feature local artists Urie and Cory Ridgeway (Nanticoke Lenape); Campatlanezi (Danza Azteca del Anahuac); master storyteller Tchin (Narragansett); Cassie Rose Mitchell (Modoc/Klamath); composer Zachariah Julian (Jicarilla); We are the Seeds Dance Troupe (Saponi/Tuscarora/Narragansett); and violinist Lauren Garrett (Eastern Shoshone of Wind River).
Following the performances, Tommy Orange will join the artists in a panel conversation about creative and cultural practices, relationships with their cities, and staying connected to their roots.
This event is co-presented by We Are the Seeds, an organization founded by a team of Indigenous women committed to uplifting and centering Indigenous voices through the arts.
The One Book, One Philadelphia Finale is respectfully and warmly dedicated to the memory of Kyle Shenandoah. We honor his impactful civic work as a beloved Grays Ferry community leader and an advocate for issues affecting Indigenous communities.
