Details

Enjoy the music and dance interpretations of Pamyua as we celebrate 15 years of presentations by outstanding Native (and non-Native) thinkers and performers in the museum’s beautiful Rasmuson Theater.

Brothers Stephen and Phillip Blanchett, of Yup’ik and African American descent, formed Pamyua in 1995, with traditional Yup’ik dancer and culture bearer Ossie Kairaiuak joining them in 1996. Revered across Europe and North America, Pamyua brings a unique style and contemporary twist to Yup’ik drum-dance songs. Experience the group’s special cultural harmony and learn more about Inuit culture through this celebration of one of the great cultural arts venues on the National Mall.

This program is generously supported by the Rasmuson Foundation.

The museum gratefully acknowledges the contributions Alaska Airlines for this program.
