OrigiNation: A Festival of Native Cultures
This weekend, April 14-15, 2012, is the OrigiNation Festival of Native Cultures. Presented in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of Native Trails, this weekend-long festival celebrates the indigenous cultures of Arizona, Australia and New Zealand through music, dance, art and more. In addition to the free Native Trails performance at noon on Saturday, don’t miss performances of “Buru” by Australia’s Marrugeku Theatre Company (2 p.m. & 8 p.m.; additional cost). “Buru” blends hip-hop, stilt dancing and storytelling with original songs and music.
