On Tuesday, the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the People, also known as Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos (ICAP), welcomed the U.S. Tribal delegation to an exciting evening cultural exchange.
“It was truly an incredible opportunity to exchange cultures and to be welcomed by the Institute and President Puig,” said NAFOA President & Oneida Nation Chairwoman Cristina Danforth. “We were treated to a rich experience of Cuban performances and were honored to be able to share our own.”
Founded December 30, 1960, ICAP is a social organization created for the purpose of promoting and explaining to the peoples of the world the relations of solidarity that sparked the Cuban Revolution. Led by President MSc. Kenia Serrano Puig, ICAP is the vehicle that strengthens the network of solidarity, while representing the Cuban people, and delivering a strong message that solidarity not only benefits Cuba but the peoples of the world who are aspiring to promote the idea that a better world is possible for all.
Throughout the evening ICAP and the tribal delegation exchanged gifts, dance performances, and shared their mutual ideas about the global community and the importance of cultural understanding to build a stronger tomorrow.
Thank you again to the wonderful ICAP staff, dancers, and President Puig for such a phenomenal experience.
