Native Americans gather in Philadelphia for a powwow at the site of a historic treaty with William Penn https://canadadancesport.com/native-americans-gather-in-philadelphia-for-a-powwow-at-the-site-of-a-historic-treaty-with-william-penn/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 22:06:07 +0000 https://canadadancesport.com/native-americans-gather-in-philadelphia-for-a-powwow-at-the-site-of-a-historic-treaty-with-william-penn/ Three hundred and forty years after William Penn and the Lenni-Lenape Indians allegedly exchanged vows of brotherhood on the banks of the Delaware River, Indigenous people from two dozen tribes gathered Sunday for a traditional powwow at the same location.

Three hundred and forty years after William Penn and the Lenni-Lenape Indians allegedly exchanged vows of brotherhood on the banks of the Delaware River, Indigenous people from two dozen tribes gathered Sunday for a traditional powwow at the same location. They came to Penn Treaty Park from across town and country to dance, share stories, see friends and affirm their continued presence in this land.

“They thought they had moved us all or wiped us all out,” said Frank Adams, chief of the Upper Mattaponi tribe, who traveled from Virginia to attend the powwow. “The Lenape tribe signed a treaty and received a bunch of land and property in that area which has now all been taken from them because the treaty was broken.”

The day-long powwow to commemorate the 1682 Treaty of Shackamaxon began with the grand entrance. Dancers and dignitaries in formal dress entered Penn Treaty Park carrying flags representing their nations, while an Aboriginal drumming group called the Red Blanket Singers played. Powwow badges convey information about both the person wearing them and the tribe they represent, said Cory Ridgeway, one of the dancers. Each dance style requires different clothing items.

Ridgeway herself dances in the women’s fantasy style, which requires a shawl over her shoulders; his children jokingly describe it as “if Jane Fonda had a dance style”. The family spends many weekends from April through November going to powwows, Ridgeway said. It’s a chance to connect with friends and relatives, to laugh, to eat – but it also has a deeper purpose.

“It’s a way to help our family and our children stay grounded in our culture,” said Ridgeway, who is part of the Nanticoke Tribe from Millsboro, Del. “They danced as soon as their feet could touch the ground. They got their first badges as newborns.

In addition to the social element, the powwow aimed to educate attendees about some of the most pressing issues facing Native Americans today. To that end, red dresses hung from the trees in a corner of the park, calling attention to missing and murdered Native women.

“Our people are never found, because they are never wanted,” said Cornelia Dimalanta, executive director of the Native American House Alliance, the nonprofit that organized the powwow. “That’s why we’re doing this – to symbolize that we’re here.”

“Our people are never found, because they are never wanted. That’s why we’re doing this – to symbolize that we’re here.

Cornelia Dimalanta, Executive Director of the Native American House Alliance

The Alliance, founded in 2019, provides social services to the more than 6,000 Indigenous people living in the Philadelphia area today. In addition to direct services, the organization is pushing Philadelphia to establish a commission for Native Americans to fund job development, education and housing, Dimalanta said.

After the grand entrance, Mayor Jim Kenney addressed the assembly.

“A lot of time has passed since they called this land Shackamaxon,” he said. “The name and reputation of brotherly love lives on in the spirit we see and feel here today.”

As the day progressed, Ridgeway’s 8-year-old son, Sahkakwenao, ran down the center of the prairie with the other kids for the “Tiny Tots” dance; when the drums started, he shivered and shook with the other children, his badges glistening in the sun.

China has unveiled the “world’s most twisted tower”. The 39-story building in Chongqing has been dubbed “Dance of Light”; its particularity mimics the aurora borealis

Who has never seen a skyscraper so tall that their head is lost in the clouds? Now add to this a tower which is also twisted.

Architecture studio Aedas has unveiled one of the world’s most twisted towers in Chongqing, a megacity in western China.

The 180-meter high skyscraper, completed in 2022, has two double-curved facades that give the impression of a twisted building.

Located in Xingfu Square in Jiangbei District in Chongqing, the “Dance of Light” building mimics the Northern Lights.

Let’s take a look at the details of this architectural marvel.

The twists

The building, which has already entertained tons of people on social media, has 34 floors of offices topped by five floors of meeting rooms and other facilities.

According to Aedas, the building has a “twist angle” of up to 8.8 degrees per floor, which the studio claims is 1.5 times more than any other skyscraper, earning it the “towers” position. most twisted in the world”.

The design team worked with consultant RFR to create a smooth exterior facade rather than the angular shapes seen in other twisted buildings. To achieve this, the building’s facade was made with cold-formed, double-curved glass, according to architecture and design magazine Dezeen.

A low-level block of the building contains restaurants and cafes.

The building is intended to serve as a landmark in Chongqing’s business district where each structure was inspired by stars or other celestial phenomena.

“As an open public space, the tower has every merit to be an icon of the city, in particular the prominent twist of the facade is remarkable,” said Ken Wai, Global Design Director at Aedas.

Stay minimalist

According to the official Aedas website, the vertical lines of the building highlight the minimalist structure. Thanks to the reflection and refraction of light, the building creates an amazing impression. As the day progresses, the light also changes color.

Wai explained that in order to continue the “dance of light” concept, the design team made sure to use light to make the building stand out.

“It’s a huge challenge and through the creation of two distinctive twists, a curvaceous shape is generated that allows natural light to follow the contour of the building to give character and a special signature,” he said. he declares.

The mullions – bars that are used between the panes of a window – have been molded to acquire the shape of semicircles that will allow natural light to follow the contours of the building.

These mullions are painted in a shiny silver PVF2 finish to allow light to reflect.

The building’s curvaceous façade offers “constantly changing perspectives around development”.

“When the sun rises, the curved facade shines and the tower becomes the building of light. When night falls, the curved facade features reflections that allude to the dancing silhouette of a ballerina,” according to the website of the studio.

Other twisted buildings

Dance of Light may be the most twisted building in the world, but it’s not the first in the world.

Officially opened in 2005, Sweden’s Turning Torso is 190 meters tall and has 54 floors. According to a report by ForbesSpanish architect Santiago Calatrava was inspired by a white marble human structure called “Twisting Torso” which led him to design the building based on the concept of sculpture.

Canada’s Absolute Towers were built and completed in 2012 by Chinese architectural firm MAD. At a height of 170 meters, the two towers house apartments on each of their oval-shaped floors.

The tallest twisted tower in the world is in Dubai. The 75-story building, called the Cayan Tower, rotates 90 degrees from base to top, report says Architect magazine.

The Padma Shri laureate said: “I don’t know the social activist personally. I was forced to dance next to her when I was discharged from the hospital after the treatment. Although she said no, she made me dance with her and recorded the video.

She said during a media interaction: “I denied it many times, but she (Behera) didn’t listen. I was sick and tired. It further deteriorated my health.

Meanwhile, the head of the tribal community association, Harish Muduli, has threatened to stage protests in the streets if the state government does not take any necessary action against the social worker.

In this week’s Baltimore Arts Sneak Peek, we chat with a Baltimore-born comedian who’s in the finals of “America’s Got Talent,” learn how fun and healthy port line dancing is, and talk of “honey” with a local filmmaker.

Baltimore native and comedian Mike E. Winfield heads to the finale after the audience and judges gave him a standing ovation on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” show on Tuesday night. The comic was one of two acts that received the most votes on Wednesday to reach the contest’s next stage for $1 million.

Winfield gets used to the enthusiastic response from the crowd.

“They were literally chanting my name,” the comedian said of his first performance in May. “It was more like an out of body experience… When I came back, Terry Crews [the show’s host] was like ‘Do you feel it? Do you feel your life changing right now?’ I was so struck by everything that was going on that I said to myself, “I don’t know”.

Winfield said he felt his roots in Baltimore made him a strong contender.

“Baltimore is different from anywhere else in the country. It’s so unique, the people there are so quirky, and I feel it’s full inside of me,” said Winfield, who has been doing stand-up for more than 15 years and can also be seen in the feature film “Pimp”. with Keke Palmer and the late rapper and actor DMX.

With his appearance in “America’s Got Talent”, he gained fans all over the world. “People are rediscovering comedy and old stand-ups from five years ago, and it’s really great.”

After Tuesday’s performance judge and comedian Howie Mandel said if Winfield doesn’t win, he could open for him in New York on September 9 at the Westbury Theater.

The winner of the competition, who receives $1 million and a place in the NBC show’s Las Vegas residence, will be announced on September 14.

“The million dollars, I feel like it’s life-changing for anyone. But for me, I have the highest exposure,” Winfield said. able to one day might even be more important than comedy.”

He joked on Tuesday’s show that he needed the money to have his newborn baby.

“I need a million dollars. I just had a baby, I didn’t know if you didn’t have a car seat they wouldn’t let you take the baby home from the hospital , so the baby is still there,” he said as the crowd burst into laughter.

Until the winner is announced, fans can follow Winfield on social media to follow his career and Maryland tour dates.

“I have to take a trip to Baltimore and the timing would be perfect after it all worked out,” said the comedian, who still has plenty of family in the area. “It’s always a good time.”

After being diagnosed with diabetes in 2015, Terry Towns started taking line dancing lessons. Within six months, she had lost weight and was off diabetes medication.

Now an online dance instructor throughout the Baltimore area, including at Waterfront Wellness every Wednesday at the Inner HarborTownes, 60, touts the benefits of the boogie.

“[Line dancing] it helps with your memory, it helps with rhythm, it helps with your coordination, and it’s a good workout,” said Townes, a Baltimore native. “And it also relieves stress.”

With free outdoor fitness classes through Waterfront Wellness, Townes offers classes with easy-to-learn moves. Most groups have around 10-15 students, but classes often grow as passers-by decide to join.

While the sessions are primarily for fun, Townes is on an educational mission. She wants Baltimore to learn the right way to do a particularly popular dance that she sees the locals doing wrong all the time.

The line dance to “Jerusalem,” a song by South African musician Master KG that dropped in 2020 and was made popular by TikTok and social media, is supposed to start with the left foot, not the right foot.

“They’re doing the dance all over the world, but for some reason when you get to Maryland and Baltimore…[people] keep saying, “Well, we do it on the right, because it’s easier to do it on the right.” But, if you’re a line dancer, you know how to do it the right way,” she said.

Dancers of all ages and skill levels can join Townes every Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. at West Shore Park. Additional classes are held at Rash Field Park and Wills Park. Waterfront Wellness runs until the end of October.

Felicia pride43, is all about creating space where she feels there is none.

His production company honey chile is led by black women and develops, creates and produces content by, for or about black women aged 40 and over, whom it calls “darlings”.

“I realized that the conversations and experiences my friends and I had weren’t necessarily captured on screen,” she said.

The company’s first feature, “Look Back at It,” was born out of a desire to tell a Baltimore story and an intergenerational narrative. Inspired by Pride’s mother, sister and niece, the film tells the story of a teenage girl who helps her 40-year-old single mother “get her groove back”.

“I try to capture Baltimore in a way that we don’t normally see, to capture the sense of community and home, of hope and overcoming, without ignoring the struggle. And I also try to capture the beauty and complexity and depth of the women in my family that I don’t see represented enough on screen,” said Pride, who wrote, directed and produced the film.

Pride said at this time that she has a “proof of concept”, a short film that demonstrates the viability of the project. To shoot the feature, she will need funding, which has been the biggest challenge behind the scenes. Still, Pride said Baltimore got her back.

“We have to balance the budget with our desires to make this project as big as possible, so we have to be strategic about the sacrifices we make,” she said. “But luckily so many family, friends and Baltimoreans stepped up to help and support us.”
