The second dance festival honoring the five renowned Native American ballerinas from Oklahoma known as the Five Moons will be held Sept. 9-11 at the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City and on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus. The five ballerinas–Maria Tallchief, Marjorie Tallchief, Rosella Hightower, Moscelyne Larkin and Yvonne Chouteau–created distinguished careers in the dance world during the 20th century. This year’s festival will highlight Moscelyne Larkin and her legacy. The festival aims to inspire the community’s interest in learning more about the Five Moons’ remarkable accomplishments and to provide a platform for female-identifying choreographers from underrepresented populations.
