Hoop of Life with Ty Defoe
Fri., Nov. 1 at 10:15 and 11:30 a.m.
Baird Auditorium, Natural History Museum
Ages 5 and up (K and up)

Fábulas Fairy TalesWith his vivid presence as a performer, Ty Defoe recounts an eloquent story of life though movement, music, and words rooted in his Oneida and Ojibwe heritage. He uses the athletic form of the ritual Hoop Dance to explore Native American stories framed by traditional and contemporary culture, history, and values. As the colorful interlinked hoops move, they speak of the unity and interdependence of all living things—and offer lessons for our everyday lives.
