Napako - Our Journey

Napako: Our Journey is an original production from the students and instructors at SAY Sí, and featuring guest artists Ruby Nelda Perez, Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson, Angelo Salgado and Joaquin Eliseo Linn. It explores the long (read: true, actual and important) version of San Antonio’s roots. Using movement and storytelling, Napako depicts and interprets a creation story from our city’s ancient indigenous history. The play looks specifically at the Blue Hole — the head of the San Antonio River and long an important practical and spiritual place — and one young man’s journey to discover its greatness when faced with its current dried-up state. It’s a powerful production that calls all San Antonians to re-contextualize our sense of place and belonging in terms of our oldest shared mythologies, our intimate relationship to the natural resources of the area, and our common longings and fears.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
