ayaga//babaami-ayaa by niniiwakamigkwe and Anastasia Adams

August 11, 2022, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

ayaga//babaami-ayaa translates “to travel around” in both Yup’ik and Anishinaabemowin. This event is a throat singing performance by Indigenous performers niniiwakamigkwe and Anastasia Adams, as a final part of a three-part performance this summer. They will be performing at the Rochester Art Center, the Belwin Conservancy, and Plains Art Museum, traveling westward. The performance’s movement represents the colonial westward expansion that violently forced the relocation and sequestering of Native peoples under the 19th century view of “Manifest Destiny.” The artists will perform Yup’ik and Nunavut-based throat singing and speak to their experiences and art as Indigenous creators. Free.
