We’re moving our studio down the street to Expo New Mexico in Albuquerque so we can give you a taste of the 34th Gathering of Nations Powwow. This annual powwow is one of the largest in the world and it attracts thousands of Indigenous people and dancers from across Turtle Island. In this program, we’ll give you a snapshot of the events and hear from some of the participants.
Dr. Frank Mirabal – director of collective impact in the office of the Mayor of Albuquerque and director of the project
Danielle Ta’Sheena Finn (Citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) – Miss Indian World 2016-2017
Larry Yazzie (member of the Meskwaki Nation) – world champion fancy dancer and founder of Native Pride Dancers
Break music: Big Crow (feat. Black Lodge Singers) (song) DJ Shub (artist) PowWowStep – EP (album)
