Big Thunder started performing in August 2014 to help promote culture and language within their communities. Big Thunder represents two tribes, Cochiti Pueblo and Hopi. The dancers are Thomas Herrera (Cochiti), Andrea Lomayaktewa (Hopi), Joseph Suina Jr. (Cochiti) and our singer Patrick Suina (Cochiti). The Turkey Dance represents the turkey and how important turkeys are to the Pueblo people. Turkey feathers are often used in ceremonies by both Cochiti and Hopi people.
