One of the most exciting dance companies in the world today, Indigenous Enterprise is taking the world by storm. Comprised of champion dancers from several different western Tribes (including the Colville!), IE creates a multimedia performance unlike any other that celebrates the past and looks to the future of Native American culture and identity.

You may have seen them at Sydney Opera House, Jacob’s Pillow, The Joyce, or – in a boundary-breaking performance – at the opening ceremonies of Superbowl LVII in Phoenix! And we could not be more excited to welcome them to the Snowy Owl Theater to wrap up our Visiting Artist series with three amazing performances.

Indigenous Enterprise was founded in 2015 with the intent of celebrating the dancers heritage, educating audiences about Native American culture, and dispelling stereotypes about Native people. Audience goers should expect to see selections of competitive and traditional powwow dances accompanied by artful contextualization about each dance’s significance and origins. Described by Jacobs Pillow as, “explosively jubilant” each performer is a champion in their respective style of dance.
