  • Patton Elementary students interviewed for "Patton Stories" series
    Posted on Tue Mar 3, 2020

    Texas Folklife participated in the annual Patton Arts Day on March 13, 2020. We worked with schools to distribute cultural survey to the students, and choose six students' stories to record. The six "Patton Stories" cover the students and their families traditions and customs. The finished audio stories are based on interviews with the students and their parents, and feature customs based in India, Ireland, Mexico, El Salvador, and more.

    Early in 2019 Sabrina Yakana participated in the Texas Folklife Apprenticeship Program. She learned the traditional art of Pingelapese stick dance from master artist Sepir Yakana, a dance previously done to train hand eye coordination for warriors entering into battle. Now, however, the dance serves as a way to entertain.
