Something to Think About
American Indian Heritage is often overlooked by populations. Why? Lack of awareness and lack of resources. Answer? Eruption.
My cultural backgrounds (I am a proud enrolled Yakama Tribal Member and a proud Filipina, too) makes Eruption stand out from the rest. I am in direct working relationships with other prominent cultural (especially American Indian) artists and community members of our region and beyond— Professional Artists, Radio hosts, Music Directors, Drum Groups, Storytellers, Stage Performers and Craftspeople. These people are integral parts of our cultural history. Plus, they tie a much needed connection with school populations.
Let me help your community break down the barriers so all generations can have a better understanding of this nation’s notorious sub-culture, the American Indian. I offer beautiful and memorable stage performances, visual art projects and exhibitions and outstanding storytelling yearlong.
Let’s start a dialogue.
American Indian Heritage Month

Ongoing art gallery shows at announced locations highlight several mediums from fantastic local Pacific NW Native Artists, including myself. See the finished art works of jewelry, paintings, photography, illustrations, drums, dance regalia, stone work, carvings and much more!

Month of November
As an enrolled member of a recognized tribe in the United States, my human experience reaches into the sub-culture of the American Indian. Throughout the year, many cultural events offered by Eruption and partner cultural groups weave art, history, storytelling, writing and dancing. Plus, multicultural events from several world communities of native peoples! Communities, classrooms and families deserve to know how the lives of American Indians are just as important as any other. Learn about the past, present and future with innovative art projects, guest artists, storytelling and best of all-- dancing!
Eruption is now accepting cultural bids and actively seeking projects for FY24-26
