Sewam American Indian Dance Company

Grades K-6

History and tradition come to life in the dances and customs of the Plains Indian tribes. Sewam American Indian Dance Company (pronounced “say-wahm”) showcases well-known American Indian dances. Wearing traditional regalia, the performers use American Indian sign language, dance, live singing, and live drumming to reveal the empowering and inspiring nature of Plains Indian culture. The performance is led by the charismatic Eddie Madril, a fan favorite for students and adults alike!

“We were amazed by the beauty, strength and skill of all of the performers.”

– 3rd grade teacher, Oak Grove Elementary School
