Get Up and Dance: The History of the Modern Powwow

Have you ever wondered about the origins and development of American Indian powwows? Dig deeper into aspects of American Indian dance with this talk by Professor Clyde Ellis. Drawn from his research among Southern Plains communities, he will explore the spirit of this unique cultural phenomenon which Ellis thinks is captured in the words of Kiowa singer Leonard Cozad, Sr. “This is a good way! Get up and dance”.

Clyde Ellis is professor of history at Elon University in North Carolina and author of “A Dancing People: Powwow Culture on the Southern Plains.” He has spent much of the past 25 years living and working in southwest Oklahoma conducting extensive fieldwork on boarding schools Christian missions, Native hymn traditions, and powwow culture.

In addition to his residences - particularly for art collectors - Olson has also designed museums, religious spaces and commercial buildings. He recently completed his first resort project, the JW Marriott in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. In Connecting With Landscape, Art, and Craft, Olson will discuss a variety of projects as part of his discourse on the powerful connection between architecture, landscape, art, and craft, including his current Denver project, Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art.
