Post One Nation, One Culture Event Held in NJ for Centennial

LODI, N.J.On Sun., March 1, the New Jersey chapter of the Hamazkayin Armenian Cultural and Educational Society hosted a cultural evening titled, One Nation, One Culture, featuring musical and dance performances in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide Centennial. The event, held at Felician College in New Jersey, drew a capacity crowd and showcased the talents of several performers from various organizations. One Nation, One Culture also served as a tribute to the victims of the genocide and as a platform to maintain the culture that was on the brink of extinction just 100 years ago.

The event was co-sponsored by the Armenian General Benevolent Union Ararat Chapter in New York, the Homenetmen Regional Executive, the Armenian Relief Society of Eastern USA, and the Tekeyan Cultural Association of Greater New York.

Performers included the Hamazkayin Meghri (Philadelphia) and Nayiri (New Jersey) dance ensembles, the AGBU Antranig dance ensemble, the Akhtamar dance ensemble of Hye Doon New Jersey, the Vanoush Khanamerian Dance Academy of New Jersey and Connecticut, as well as the Hamazkayin Arekag Childrens Choir, Huyser Ensemble, and New York-based singer-songwriter Hooshere.
The commemoration opened with the Homenetmen Scouts parading onto the stage with torches, which they laid at the model Dzidzernagapert Memorial prepared for the event. The Tekeyan Cultural Associations Mher Megerdichian Theatrical Group presented short sketches about the history of the Armenian people in between the dance and musical performances. Highlights of the sketches included the self-defense battles during the genocide, the Battle of Sardarabad, and the declaration of the independence of Armenia.
