Their goal is to take the healing power of the Ojibwe jingle dress to the land, to travel, to dance and capture a series of images to document the spiritual places our ancestors once walked, and to unite and give hope to the world through art, dance and culture to help us heal.
12 p.m. – Gabriel Ayala with Special guest Tim Blueflint Ramel

Experience the talent of Gabriel Ayala, a renowned classical guitarist hailing from the Yaqui community of southern Arizona. Gabriel’s exceptional musicality and masterful technique have captivated audiences across the globe.

1 p.m. – Hoapili with Indy Hula

Discover the enchanting sounds of Hoapili, a four-piece band born and raised in the Hawaiian Islands, specializing in both traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music. Since forming in 2008 to accompany ‘Kumu Hula’ Shasta Puanani Hud and her hula school, Hoapili has mastered the art of blending harmonious vocals with intricate musical arrangements.

2 p.m. – Storytelling with Perry Ground (Turtle Clan Member of the Onondaga Nation)

3:30 p.m. – Sihasin

Multi-award winning musicians, Jeneda and Clayson Benally from the Dine’ (Navajo) Nation in Northern Arizona create a politically-charged explosive organic sound out of just bass and drums, inspiring their listeners with a hard punk backbone, softened by folk, world and thumping by pop and based in Navajo Rhythm. As brother and sister, they grew up protesting the environmental degradation and inhumane acts of cultural genocide against their traditional way of life.
