Explore the electrifying world of pow-wow dance in The People Dance! with the Indigenous Enterprise Dancers on Sunday, November 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum. Representing many nations, Indigenous Enterprise uses the beauty and energy of pow-wow style dance to educate the public about the proud traditions and dynamic creativity of modern Native American artists.

Under the night sky on the Museum patio next to the prehistoric ruins of the Pueblo Grande village, Indigenous Enterprise will perform colorful and high-energy Northern-style pow-wow dances to the brilliant vocals of pow-wow music and the modern rhythms of beat driven contemporary music. Kenneth Shirley (Navajo), Ty Lodgepole (Navajo), Ike Owens (Blackfoot/Navajo) and George Gonzales (Pima) have been making a name for themselves as representatives of their cultures by honoring the traditional music of the pow-wow as they explore new, creative expressions using contemporary music. An explanation of pow-wow dance and an in-depth description of the elements of dance regalia will provide the audience with a greater appreciation of the subtleties of Native American expression.

After the performance, guests will have the opportunity to meet the members of Indigenous Enterprise, purchase merchandise, and take pictures with the dancers. Tickets to The People Dance! are $10 in advance or $12 the day of. Discounts are available for Museum Members. During the performance, guests can also enjoy light refreshments provided by Julie’s Catering.

This “Meet the Artist” Concert is part of a Fall and Spring concert series made possible through the collaborative efforts of Canyon Records, local independent recording label, and the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. This partnership is a continuation of the programming that accompanied the recent One World, Many Voices: The Artistry of Canyon Records exhibit to provide a variety of platforms for Native American music and expression.
