Generations in the Making

The IPCC is the only place in North America to offer cultural Native American dances every week year-round, providing unprecedented access to centuries-old traditions of cultural heritage from dance groups from the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico, as well as Plains style, Navajo, Apache, and Hopi dancers.
