The 2nd annual Dule Art Festival is making its way to Clayton’s City of Knowledge on Saturday, August 9 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The event, a showcase of Panamanian Indian art, celebrates the 90th anniversary of the Dule Revolution of 1925 and the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. Visitors will be able to learn about the culture of Panama’s native communities in a wide range of activities planned for the day.

The word “Dule” (sometimes spelled “Tule”) refers to members of the Guna people and is the name they call themselves, which means “people.” The reference notwithstanding, the festival will include participation from most of the indigenous groups in in the country.

Art displays, performances (including traditional dances), crafts, cuisine, literature and other educationally relevant material will serve to showcase the rich tapestry of each group’s cultural contributions.

The Dule Art Festival is sponsored in part by the Four Worlds Foundation (FWF) and the Community of Guna Artists. The event takes place at the City of Knowledge’s Convention Center and costs $2 to attend. For more details, visit CiudadDelSaber.org.
