Location and Hours


The Orona Family with instruments

Sons and Fathers:
Apache survival and renewal expressed through music, stories and poetry

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 27 for this special celebration of Apache culture by Canyon Records recording artists Joel, Roman and Tahj Orona.

The program features Apache artistry and lifeways presented by the three generations of the Orona family through the poetry of Joel, music and stories of Joel and Roman, and northern-style men's traditional dances by Tahj. They will share with us the importance of the father and son connection within Apache culture -- exploring how in the past it provided social structures for communal survival, and how in the present it provides social structures for accomplishment.
