This year's event features performance group Beyond the Circle and performance artist Supaman, both hosted in Elliott Union Room 240.

Both events are free and open to the public!

Schedule of Events

Nov. 1, Beyond the Circle: Doors open at 4:30 pm, performance at 5:00 pm

Nov. 8, Supaman: Doors open at 6:30 pm, concert at 7:00 pm

 

Beyond the Circle is a multigenerational performance group that represents the Navajo, Ottawa, Ojibwe, Zuni and Apache tribes. They have performed and powwowed all over the United States sharing their heritage and culture through traditional song and dance. Their performance will be followed by a Kahoot trivia game sponsored by The Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity.  

Supaman is a performance artist who inspires others by merging Native American culture with comedy, dance and his unique blend of hip-hop music into his live concerts.

Students may use both events as entries in their multicultural passport.

The 9th annual Trading Moon Native American Dance and Arts Exhibition is made possible through grant funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Missouri Arts Council, and on campus sponsors including The Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity, the Division of Music, and the Office of Student Experience and Engagement.
