Join us in the OMCA Amphitheater for an evening of powerful drum beats, dancing, and singing in honor of Indigneous Peoples’ Month. All Nations Singers is a legendary Northern Style Pow Wow singing group founded in Oakland by Michael Bellanger and others in 1989. This intertribal Indigenous singing and drumming group will bring that big Pow Wow sound to Friday Nights at OMCA at 7 pm and again at 8 pm. 

At 7:30 pm, enjoy a performance of traditional Pomo dancing and singing from the North Bay’s Sonoma County Pomo Dancers. This group of talented dancers and singers offers an experience of ceremony, prayer, song, and dance straight from tribal community. 

DJ Benet will be playing in the Amphitheater from 6 to 8 pm. 

*Performances are subject to change.
