Here Song Walk with Cannupa Hanska Luger
Saturday November 6, 2021, 1 PM EST
Cannupa Hanka Luger’s ancestors, the people of the Northern Plains Tribes of North America, studied horizon lines to create melody and other types of sonic experiences. This practice, known as “singing the horizon,” connected them to place and reinforced their relationship to the land.
Working with Atlanta’s Flux Projects, Luger created Here Song, a mobile app that allows users to trace the land and create tonal resonances—sonic stories that engage directly with the land.
Join Cannupa Hanska Luger and master naturalist and nature photographer Kathryn Kolb, for a guided walk through Atlanta’s Cascade Springs Nature Preserve, one of the largest areas of old-growth forest in the city. The park lies on Cascade Road, which follows the ancient Native American Sandtown Trail that stretched from Stone Mountain to the Creek village of Sandtown on the Chattahoochee and into Alabama.
Meet at 1 PM at the Kilgo Circle entrance to the Carlos Museum to board the bus to Cascade Nature Preserve.
