From 1-8 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 at Mid-America All Indian Museum, 650 N Seneca, there will be a Bosin Social Dance and Exhibit Closing for “Bring the Bosins Home.”
The exhibit, which chronicles the life and work of Blackbear Bosin, has been on view since June 5, 2021 — what would have been the artist’s 100th birthday. Bosin was an internationally recognized Kiowa-Comanche artist, creator of Wichita’s iconic Keeper of the Plains, and one of the original founders of the Indian Museum.
A social dance differs from a powwow in that it is a community intertribal dance with no grand entry, contest or giveaways. Everyone is invited to participate, regardless of tribal affiliation, age, or gender. There will be activities and crafts for kids in the Keeper Zone from 1-3 p.m. Concessions will be available on site, sold by the Native American Elders Council.
Admission is free for the Bosin Social Dance. Visitors are also welcome to explore the galleries free of charge during the social dance.
