Caddo Tribe Art Exhibit
Date(s) - 10 Aug 2012 until 5 Nov 2012

Hasi nai: This Is Home exhibition and its associated programming will cross the conventional fine art boundaries of medium and form to explore the interrelationship between Caddo visual arts and dance, language, music, and history. With an art exhibit, art and dance demonstrations, language and cultural classes and scholarly lectures, prominent Caddo cultural experts in the areas of painting, jewelry, pottery, song and language will address how tribal values, history and cultural knowledge are transmitted through these diverse expressive artistic and social forms. In conclusion, Hasi nai: This Is Home high
lights the diversity of Oklahoma’s rich artistic heritage and demonstrates the resilience of Caddo people through art and culture. The Art opening is Friday August 10th 6-9pm with an Indian Taco Sale 5-8pm. Lectures and events will take place over a three month period beginning with the second Friday Circuit of Art event on September 14. That evening, Caddo potters and painters will present and explain their works and take questions from the public. During the Second Friday Circuit of Art October 12, there will be a discussion of Caddo dress and moccasin-making, with another discussion and demonstration on ancient Hasi nai drum- and bow-making. A traditional Caddo dance demonstration will be held the following day, Saturday, October 13, with music and dances. There will also be a culinary demonstration and tasting of traditional Caddo foods during the dance break. Starting Monday evenings on September 10, and taking place weekly through November 26, the Jacobson House will host classes Monday evenings in Caddo traditional art forms, culture and language run by Caddo language scholars of the tribe.
