Film: Belén
A cocoa farmer and musician from a small Afro-Venezuelan village, unaware of her powers, becomes an inspiration to her community. She was the Queen of the Quitipla, master of bamboo sounds and silences.  A trip into the puzzled reminiscences of this woman’s life (and death) captured through more than a hundred hours of amateur found footage and expressed through the mirrored gestures of multiple points of view. The Museum’s documentary film series is part of the HeARThstone Project, which is supported by the generosity of the Harry C. Trexler Trust.

“Walk to the Water: An Evening With Delwin Fiddler”
Mr. Fiddler will demonstrate the healing nature of Native American culture through stirring traditional hand drum songs sung in the Lakota language followed by the vibrant beauty and majesty of his people’s traditional dances. He will perform the sacred Buffalo Dance in a buffalo headdress, the Grass Dance, and the Hoop (Eagle) Dance before inviting volunteers from the audience to learn and participate in the Round Dance, which is a dance symbolizing unity and love. Native American dances are done in traditional Lakota regalia. Mr. Fiddler is prepared to discuss the origin and meaning of his hoop and grass dances as well as Native American spirituality.

 Delwin Fiddler Jr. is a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe and a world-renowned Native American performance artist. He enjoys being able to share songs, dances, and flute playing from the Lakota Native American nations. Mr. Fiddler is an expert at giving guided historic tours of Native American ancestral lands of Turtle Island. According to several Native American prophecies, the present time on this earth is considered a critical time in history for the well-being of our planet. Mr. Fiddler has dedicated his life to protecting Mother Earth as an environmental activist, and he shares wisdom from his personal experience in 2016 as a Water Protector at Standing Rock.
