Anchorage, Alaska –The Alaska Native Heritage Center, First Alaskans Institute and the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation have partnered to host a benefit concert featuring A Tribe Called Red, an award-winning Canadian indigenous electric pow-wow music group. The concert will be A Tribe Called Red’s first show in Alaska and will be held at Williwaw in Anchorage on Wednesday, July 13, 2016. The show begins at 7:00pm. Proceeds benefit the three statewide Alaska Native organizations.
“Being able to share this group with Alaska, considering their distinct musical and social justice edge by combining indigenous music and sounds with pulsing dance music, for a benefit concert is very exciting!!” said Liz Medicine Crow, President/CEO of FAI. “Linking arms with our sister organizations – Alaska Native Heritage Center & Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation – makes it that much better as we collaboratively fundraise to advance our work.”
“The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation is delighted to co-sponsor A Tribe Called Red benefit concert with the Alaska Native Heritage Center and First Alaskans Institute,” said Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation Director Carrie Brown. “Together, our organizations are committed to vibrant healthy Alaska Native people and cultures.”
“All too often our organizations just do the work that we do, but when we come together for our Native Community, that’s when the beauty of our people really shine,” said Alaska Native Heritage Center President & CEO Annette Evans Smith.
