DeLanna Studi at the Hop

And So We Walked

January 10 - 11, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 Hop Presents season. This is an archived view.

A young Native artist takes a multigenerational journey back in time.

19/20 Hop Presents

The Trail of Tears forced an estimated 100,000 Native Americans to relocate from the Southeastern United States to the West. Some 15,000 died on the 5,000 mile journey. Among the survivors were ancestors of award-winning Cherokee writer and performer DeLanna Studi. And So We Walked is Studi's bold, heartwarming story of walking with her father along a 900-mile portion of the Trail. It's a voyage into her own identity and what her ancestors endured.

Part of the Hop's ongoing commitment to Native voices and themes, this multifaceted memoir draws on interviews, historical research and the personal experience to convey the challenges facing contemporary Native Americans.

Programmed in conjunction with CIPX Dartmouth: Kali Spitzer and Will Wilson, a project and exhibit at the Hood Museum of Art, January 15 through March 29.

The Top of the Hop Bar will be open Friday and Saturday from 6 pm through intermission. Bring your ticket for $1 off a drink; Hop Members at the Investor+ level receive a complimentary drink.

The Hopkins Center for the Arts acknowledges that its buildings are situated upon the ancestral and unceded lands of the Abenaki people.

Saturday's performance will be ASL interpreted.

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts
