New Bedford Whaling Museum Theater
The Educational through Cultural and Historical Organizations (ECHO). This year’s festival focused on the harvesting of food and the celebrations often associated with that food. The performers from the ECHO partner programs in AK, HI, MA and MS, weaved together story, song and dance to both entertain and educate audiences of all ages. New Bedford’s own was once again a member of this very talented group.
ECHO participants include:
Ani Lokomaika`i Lipscomb, Bishop Museum in Hawai`i
Nitana Hicks, Peabody Essex Museum, in Salem, MA
M. Cochise Anderson, of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indian
Allan Hayton of the Alaska Native Heritage Center
Cathy Tagnak Rexford of the Inupiat Heritage Center
Candida Rose, New Bedford, MA
