Tekcno Tipi

When: Thu., April 12, 3:30 p.m. 2012

"The tipi is much better to live in: always clean, warm in winter, cool in summer, easy to move ... If the Great Spirit wanted men to stay in one place he would make the world stand still." Those words come from Flying Hawk, an Oglala Lakota, who adds that the homes of the white men "shut out sun" and are "always sick." Today the tipi is the "largest culturally resonant object in the Plains culture," according to Northern Cheyenne artist Bently Spang, who will hold a "conversation" with a tipi from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. today at Colorado College's Worner Student Center Quad (902 N. Cascade Ave., theideaspace.com). Tekcno Tipi is a free performance piece, and like other events Spang has held, will likely be deeply touching, humorous and insightful. — Edie Adelstein
