Watch Now: Black Hawk Performance Company

Watch this special evening performance with Chicago’s Black Hawk Performance Company. Founded in 1984 by Zuni/Isleta singer, dancer and award winning artist, the late Carlos Peynetsa, the company has performed for thousands of people across Illinois over the years, and his daughter, Kelly Summers, carries on its legacy as ambassador, with Dr. Dorene Wiese, White Wing Woman, as artistic director. Named after the great Sauk Chief Black Hawk, the company seeks to honor the ground we dance on, Mother Earth and the many tribes who have made Illinois their home. Learn about American Indian people through music and dance with this group made up of intergenerational performers, and sponsored by the American Indian Association of Illinois. This event is co-sponsored by American Indian Association of Illinois.
