Description: A screening of HaMapah/The Map Dance-on-Film and a community discussion around discovering personal identity. HaMapah/The Map Dance on-Film (30 min.) chronicles dancer and choreographer Adam W. McKinney’s return to his ancestral homelands—Benin, Poland, Montana, Arkansas, Missouri, and Wisconsin—to trace the intersections of his African American, Native American, and Jewish heritages. Directed by Daniel Banks and filmed by documentary filmmaker Laura Bustillos Jáquez, the work was created over a four-year period as a way to investigate the possibility of healing transgenerational traumas. HaMapah/The Map Dance-on-Film explores issues of identity, heritage, and ancestry and offers a complex and powerful story about humanity and mixed-heritage identity. EVENT 11

This event will be partially recorded and made available to conference attendees for 3 days via a private link. The film and introductions will be recorded, the breakout rooms and sharing portion will not be recorded.
