Pueblo Oral Traditions: Storytelling Through Music Presented by Marlon Magdalena
January 7th, 2019
Many indigenous communities throughout the New World do not have written languages. This means that traditional cultural knowledge of those communities has to be passed orally from one generation to the next. Music often plays a pivotal role in how communities pass on knowledge, specifically during participation in seasonal cultural activities. The focus of this presentation will be on storytelling through music as learned and taught by a Jemez Pueblo tribal member. The event is Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 2 p.m at the DeLavy House.
Marlon Magdalena is the Instructional Coordinator of Jemez Historic Site in Jemez Springs, New Mexico and a Jemez Pueblo tribal member. As an educator, he gives presentations, demonstrations, and lectures about Jemez and Coronado Historic Sites, as well as, other interesting topics.
The Lecture will take place at the Sandoval County Historical Society Museum (DeLavy House) on Edmond Road and Hwy 550, Bernalillo. Admission is $5; Friends of CHS are free. For more information visit: kuaua.com or phone Barb at 815-978-5327.
