The Songs Endure, they Carry the Stories: Music and Dance of the Native Southwest

Music, dance and ceremony remain essential to the complex and dynamic cultural life of the Native Southwest. This exhibition celebrates the instruments and regalia used in ongoing music and dance traditions among the Apache, Pueblo, Hopi, Navajo, Yoeme (Yaqui) and Raramuri (Tarahumara) people.

Audio and visual elements accompany the over 70 historic and contemporary treasures from the University Museum collection.

The Songs Endure, They Carry the Stories: Music and Dance of the Native Southwest is funded by a grant from the Southwest and Border Cultures Institute of NMSU.
