Siapo: Interacting with the Past, Present and Possible Future of an Ancestral Art Form
Instructor Regina Meredith-Fitiao will share slides of historical siapo artifacts and the process in the making of a siapo. She will cover the significance of siapo motifs. Engaging the participants in designing a siapo will be the highlight of this workshop. Participants will also be asked to collaborate with Meredith on a siapo mamanu in progress, and work with the authentic materials used for Samoan siapo.
CPIA will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) celebrations scheduled to take place in San Francisco throughout the year, along with the following exhibitions: Oakland Museum’s Pacific Worlds and Royal Hawaiian Featherworks: Na Hulu Ali’i exhibit at the deYoung Museum.
