A Tribe Called Red event raises money for Healthy Alaska Natives FoundationJuly 29, 2016
On July 13, Native producers/DJ crew, A Tribe Called Red, performed in Anchorage to celebrate community collaboration and vibrant healthy people and cultures. The concert was brought to Anchorage by three statewide Alaska Native nonprofits, Alaska Native Heritage Center, First Alaskans Institute and Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation, with proceeds benefitting the three organizations.
This was an exciting partnership that highlighted the strength of our Alaska Native community and magnified the impact that each of the three organizations makes across the state.
Championing their Canadian First Nations heritage, A Tribe Called Red’s show is a platform to address aboriginal issues, mixing traditional pow wow vocals and drumming with cutting-edge electronic music. Alaska band Pamyua, known for their “Inuit soul music,” opened the event for a crowd of more than 600 people at the Williwaw in downtown Anchorage.
