Texas Premiere of THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN (1920) Screening & Panel | Jan 25

AFS Film DAUGHTER OF THE DAWN

Texas Archive of the Moving Image and Austin Film Society host the Texas premiere of THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN (1920) on January 25, at The Marchesa Theatre. Considered lost for decades, this recently restored Texas-produced film stars an all-Native American cast of Kiowas and Comanches, including the son and daughter of legendary Comanche war Chief Quanah Parker. Immediately following the film, a panel featuring film scholars will discuss cinema and its representation of Native Americans, as well as archival and historical implications for celebrity and public memory. In 2013, THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN was named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry due to its historical and cultural significance, but the film has never been screened in its “home state”… until now. #Austin #ATX

Sacred Springs Powwow | San Marcos, Texas | Oct. 5

Sacred Springs Powwow 2013

The 2013 Sacred Springs Powwow will honor a thousand-year-old prophecy about the eagle and condor with storytelling, flute playing and Aztec dance on Saturday, October 5, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Aquarena Center in San Marcos, Texas. Over 100 Native American dancers, and 40 artists and food vendors are expected for this extraordinary cultural celebration set along the shores of Spring Lake. Archeologists have determined that this is the oldest, continuously inhabited site in North America. Admission: $2 or two cans of food for the Food Bank.  Free Admission: Veterans, Elders, Students and Children

SCHEDULE

The eagle and condor prophecy exists among several Native groups such as the Andean Quechua, New Mexican Hopi, Guatemalan, Honduran and Mexican Maya, Ecuadorian Shuar and other traditional indigenous cultures of North, Central and South America. One of the many versions of that prophecy states that when the eagle and condor fly together again, balance and proper order will be restored. Some people interpret this as the coming together of indigenous people from the north with those from the south to renew their covenant with Mother Earth.
