‘Welcome to Indian Country’ brings groundbreaking celebration of Indigenous culture to Billings, presented by the Billings Symphony
Spend an evening in celebration of Native culture through contemporary music and storytelling during Welcome to Indian Country on Saturday, Aug. 13, presented by the Billings Symphony. This event kicks off the symphony’s 2022-2023 season, featuring 30 events at 13 venues throughout Billings.
Beginning this robust season, Welcome to Indian Country is a five-piece Indigenous music ensemble joined by Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest, storyteller and member of the Lhaq’temish (Lummi) Nation. Together they share original compositions, poetry, and songs paired with wit, satire, and wisdom to honor Native elders and ancestors. Their performance unearths the depth, joy, and solidarity that Indigenous people find in their community, culture, and family.
