In an extension of the Why Canoes? exhibit on Northrop’s fourth floor Gallery, Northrop Plaza will reverberate with Micronesian harmonies when The Milanesians—the Micronesian community in Milan, Minnesota, take to the stage. Known as an oral society, Micronesians convey information in their music, their traditional chants tell of past events and changing cultural patterns.
