The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the performance: "Welcome to Indian Country" on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 and Thursday, 23, 2021 with performances starting at 7:00 PM.

Presented in partnership with the American Indian and Indigenous Community Center.

Claiming rich heritage, representation, and contexts both ancient and urban, Indigenous artists reveal the power of music and stories in the East Coast work-in-progress premiere of "Welcome to Indian Country", commissioned in part by the Moss Arts Center.

Diverse Native American performers seamlessly share seven songs and seven stories (seven is an auspicious number in many tribes) about life, love, connecting to culture, survival, and resilience. In an evening celebrating Native peoples and culture through original and historic music, poetry, and storytelling, collaborators Delbert Anderson, Nick Lucero, Nokosee Fields, Mali Obomsawin, Julia Fields, and Rena Priest represent the Diné (Navajo), Osage, Nez Perce, Lhaq’temish (Lummi), and Abenaki, as well as South American Indigenous descent.

Together, they exemplify the vibrant life of modern Native people and honor their ancestors—including the Indigenous musicians who left an indelible mark on the world—and the many art forms we call American music. Welcome to Indian Country captures the joy the artists feel being part of a Native community, while sharing their expressions with the world.

The cost is $25.00 for general admission and $10.00 for students with ID and youth 18 and under.
