On behalf of Charlotte "Minnie" Lewis, the Neighborhood Story Project invites you to the reopening of the House of Dance & Feathers, the beloved community-based museum was founded by her husband, the late Ronald W. Lewis in 2003. The space, located at 1317 Tupelo Street in the Lower 9th Ward, has been renovated. The House of Dance & Feathers looks forward to again celebrating the doors being open to the community, now under Minnie's directorship.

Performers at this event include Sunpie and the Louisiana Sunspots with special guests from the Northside Skull and Bone Gang, a beading demonstration by Victor Harris and Jack Robertson of The Spirit of Fi Yi Yi, a wonderful collection of Indigenous medicines hosted by the Bvlbancha Trade Table, and the Krewe de Jieuxs' All Ages Umbrella Workshop.

Refreshments will be served.

This event is sponsored by The House of Dance & Feathers, The Neighborhood Story Project, The Department of Anthropology & Sociology at the University of New Orleans with support from the Boebel Chair, Another Gulf is Possible, the Rajan-Young Family Fund, the Land Memory Bank and Seed Exchange, and the Northside Skull and Bone Gang.
