Two-Hawks has held fast to his Oglala Lakota Sioux lineage and culture, and it is from this place that the soul of the music he creates and breathes to life is born. With an evocative tapestry of mystical sound and moving oratory, Two-Hawks welcomes all to reawaken the awareness of our living connection with Earth and the unseen world. He has always believed that if we all use our gifts in a way that plants seeds of hope and love, one day we will realize the dream of a world where diverse cultures and nations can share the planet in peace with one another. Two-Hawks is a Grammy®- and Emmy®- nominated, Platinum Award Winning recording artist, author, and activist whose music has been featured in movies by Fox Searchlight, films by HBO, and programs by The History Channel. The advanced registration deadline for the concert is July 14 with a fee of $20. Later concert registrations will be $35.
During Saturday’s program, take a journey with Two-Hawks into the mysteries of the hokagapi—that ancient indigenous woodwind that makes a voice to the song of your heart, was used to serenade a beloved, and became an instrument of healing for a line of medicine people. A fun experience of exploration of the amazing, enchanting Native American flute, with stories, lessons and song. Flutes will be available to borrow or purchase. The advance registration deadline is July 14 with a fee of $55. Registrations after that date will be $80.
