Indian Summer 1996: Inti-Raymi - Festival of the Sun HIDVL

For several years Indian Summer at the American Community House has been initiated by Inti Raymi, as an attempt to breakdown the borders between indigenous peoples in the Americas. Inti Raymi or "sun festival" is an annual Incan festival celebrating the winter solstice by marking the return of the sun, which provides food, life and health. Members of the Muyuy Cultural Center in New York City shared this celebration by performing music and dance. The video includes a short Coatlicue Theater Company performance, a demonstration of a hoop dance and other musical acts.  To view all video holdings for the Coatlicue Theater Company please visit their full Artist Profile here.

Indian Summer is an annual event at AICH and an occasion for artists to present their latest works to the community and the general public. All performers, whether new to the field or veteran practitioners, are encouraged to present their work.
