The Central Library is hosting a free event featuring Daystar, a Rochester-based company that educates and entertains with the contemporary Native American dance-drama. Rosalie Jones, who was born on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana and earned a master's degree in dance from the University of Utah, founded Daystar in 1980. It is the first such dance company comprised of all-native performers. Daystar specializes in portraying indigenous stories such as "Tales of Napi Old Man" (Blackfeet), "Wolf: A Transformation" (Anishinabe), and more. Audience participation is encouraged.
Daystar will perform at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 9, at Central Library, 115 South Avenue. The program will last approximately an hour. Admission is free and is for all ages. For more information, visit libraryweb.org or call 428-8150.
