Contemporary dancer and performance artist Maura Michelle Garcia performs her original multi-media piece that explores the world of the ancient Cherokee fairies, the Yunwi Tsundi or “little people,” and about having, loosing and reclaiming traditional Cherokee beliefs and Native identity.
“We’re thrilled to host Maura Michelle Garcia in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibition of contemporary Cherokee carvers. Maura is a contemporary dancer and choreographer of Cherokee descent and this is a wonderful opportunity to connect two different art forms that both relate to the past and continue the dialogue of what it means to be Cherokee today,” says Nancy Sokolove, Asheville Art Museum Adult Programs Manager.
