Beyond the Frame: Native Film and Performing Arts

 

This list of film, music and dance by Native American artists was created by a librarian at the Seattle Public Library in conjunction with Beyond the Frame, a community-wide initiative revisiting the photographs of Edward S. Curtis and sparking conversations on Native identity, race and resilience, art and culture. The Library will be presenting exhibits and related programming throughout 2018, beginning with Living Cultures.

Waila! Making the People Happy

Waila! Making the People Happy

Central European immigrants brought polka music to America in the mid-19th century but the people in the O'odham Indian nations in Arizona's Sonoran desert have made the mixture of accordions, saxophones and percussion all their own...Taken from the word baila, which means dance in Spanish, Akimel and Tohono people have created waila, a form of music that embodies polka and Mexican tejano, cumbias and Norteno. And one family, the famous Joaquin Brothers, have taken waila (pronounced y-la) all the way to Carnegie Hall to show that "Indian music" is what culture and language make it to be.
