Unique celebration of Native American culture coming to Weber State

OGDEN, Utah — Weber State University is celebrating Native American culture and heritage with a performance of Indigenous Soundscapes in Motion March 15 in the Val A. Browning Center’s Austad Theater. A dancer from Indigenous Soundscapes in Motion is jumping in the middle of an empty street while wearing his Native American cultural attire. The sun is setting in the background, and the sky has shades of blue, pink and yellow.

The only performance of its kind in Utah, the event will weave together world-renowned musicians, dancers and poets. 

The event will feature Grammy-nominated Navajo singer Radmilla Cody; Shoshone-Navajo-Okanogan flutist Hovia Edwards, who performed at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics opening ceremony; Menominee and Oneida singer and Native American Music Awards Best Male Artist, Wayne Silas Jr.; and powwow dancers from the dance company Indigenous Enterprise who performed on World of Dance and the virtual presidential inauguration parade.

They will be joined by Rolando Morales-Matos, a jazz, Latin and classical percussionist and assistant conductor of Broadway’s The Lion King, and Udi Bar-David, one of the world’s most versatile cellists and member of the Philadelphia Orchestra. 

“I can’t wait to witness this unique production,” said Deborah Uman, dean of the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities. “We are incredibly fortunate to have this talented group of artists here at Weber State.”
