Click on the image to see a QuickTime movie (2.1 MB)

In 1973, with the support of the Puffers, Frank Day began teaching Maidu song and dance to a group of California Indians. Today, the Maidu Dancers and Traditionalists continue to perform the dances he taught them, and are his living legacy.
  The works of three contemporary artists of Maidu descent, Dalbert Castro, Harry Fonseca, and Judith Lowry are also included in the Exhibit. We managed to quickly videotape a very busy Harry Fonseca during his whirlwind visit to NMAI for the opening, and related panel discussion.
