A Special THANK YOU

To all our circle for cultural, emotional, energetic, spiritual nourishment that helped us get to Norway's RIDDU RIDDU Festival; our participation in this engagement was supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, through USArtists International, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Dancing Earth is respectfully based in Yelamu ( also known as San Francisco) -  traditional  territories of Ohlone peoples, and Oka Pogeh ( also know as Santa Fe ) - traditional territories of Tewa, Towa and Keres peoples, and we hold our relations as respectful indigenous intertribal allies.
 
 

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SUPPORTERS
