Master Class with Big Chief Shaka Zulu brings the inspiration of New Orleans, culture and sound!

About this event

The William Grant Still art center will present a Master Class with the 2022 (NEA) National Heritage Fellow recipient Big Chief Shaka Zulu. Shaka Zulu is one of the lead Black Masking Craftsmen of New Orleans and the leader of the Yellow Pocahontas tribe. The focus of the class will be on the costuming tradition of the Yellow Pocahontas tribe. His class is an oral history lesson that includes discussion about the migration to the Americas, the evolution and creation of Congo Square, and the 160 years timeline of life, cultural and musical practice as free black people in the United States of America. Shaka will give participants some insight into a cultural tradition that is for the most part not general public knowledge, but an integral part of American History.

Códice Maya de México

Around 900 years ago, a Maya scribe made the Códice Maya de México, a sacred book that tracked and predicted movements of the planet Venus. Today it is the oldest book of the Americas, one of only four surviving Maya manuscripts that predate the arrival of Europeans. A remarkable testament to the complexity of Indigenous astronomy, the Codice on display in the US for the first time in 50 years.
