Your Gateway to Exceptional Contemporary Indigenous Performing Arts

Years ago, when I was actively creating and performing in the dance theatre space, I lamented that I had no idea if there were any other Native American performing artists that were operating in the contemporary space - who were pushing boundaries. There were, there are. It was only through my work as Program Officer at Native Arts and Cultures Foundation that I began to understand the reality, that performances inspired by Indigenaity were happening across the United States. In the last year an a half I have deepened my knowledge of emerging artists in the field and come to understand that there are hundreds, even thousands of us - telling stories and fighting the subtle fight to regain our own narrative. I will be publishing a calendar every three months of exceptional Native performing arts - not as an agent, but as an advocate for the field.
