The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is pleased to announce a new collection and documentation project focusing on the work of Sankofa, a group founded in 1992 to preserve and promote cultural awareness of the African diaspora in the Rocky Mountain Region. Since the group’s inception, the six founding women of African/Caribbean heritage combined their talents to carry out this mission through authentic African dance performances, arts & crafts workshops, storytelling and community involvement.

CSPM is excited to host Sankofa Culture Day to celebrate the work of this group. This family-friendly event will feature music, dance, storytelling, traditional foods, crafts and more. We are also thrilled to unveil our latest Story of Us theme, S= Sankofa. The new digital exhibit will premier during the event.

$5 Suggested Donation, Free for members

    Hello,

    My family and I attended the Sankofa event on Saturday and really enjoyed it. My daughter liked the drum craft and the drumming and I wanted to know if the organization ever hosts public drumming performances other places throughout the year? We would like to see them again and would appreciate any information you can provide.

    thanks,
    Darcie
