In the premiere of Native Intelligence / Innate Intelligence, Christopher K. Morgan & Artists (CKM&A) asks how a Hawaiian separated from their ancestral land and immersed in a contemporary world maintains their cultural identity and integrity. This two-part dance performance incorporates contemporary dance, hula, Hawaiian chant, and original live music. This ensemble work examines the human instinct to connect to one another, no matter the identity labels perceived or prescribed upon us. The two parts create a comprehensive picture of the complexities contemporary Native people navigate and move fluidly between, and invites audiences to reflect on their own identity, perception of Native people, and instincts.
