Community information: Rumble on the Rim celebrates indigenous connections to the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is an ageless wonder of the world. Though 2019 marks the Grand Canyon’s centennial as a national park, it has been home to indigenous people for millennia.

The event will combine presentations and performances that collectively tell an indigenous history of Grand Canyon.
Speakers and performers include Vernon Masayesva, Ed Kabotie and Tha ‘Yoties, The Antelope Track Dance Group (Hopi), Davona Blackhorse, Havasupai Guardians of Grand Canyon, Havasupai Youth Ram dancers, Grammy nominee Radmilla Cody, Save the Confluence, Ryon Polequaptewa, World Champion Hoop Dancer, Derrick Davis and live art by Jerrel Singer.
In addition to the presentations, guest artists from the Rumble Arts Collective will be demonstrating and showing their art at the show.
