A television series, a student internship program and a film festival are three of the new programs being developed by three Santa Fe-based Native American arts institutions: Center for Indigenous Arts and Cultures, Institute of American Indian Arts and the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts.
“Go Native Arts!” will explore and celebrate Native arts and artists from throughout the Western Hemisphere. The initial episodes focus on three major Southwest tribal cultures: Apache, Navajo, and Pueblo. Navajo painter Tony Abeyta and his family will be profiled in an upcoming episode. Dancing Earth choreographer/director, Rulan Tangen (Metis), will be performing with her dance group.
