SANTA FE – Santa Fe Indian Center is pleased to announce the seventh Annual American Indian Community Day will take place on Saturday, September 16th, 2017 from 12:00pm to 4 pm at Ragle Park, corner of Zia and Yucca Street in Santa Fe. Art projects, food, raffles, music, nonprofit booths and fun activities are part of American Indian Community Day. The festivities will begin at 12:00 pm with a Native prayer, followed by a proclamation presentation by Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales and a traditional Pueblo dance. Attendees are invited to share a meal while listening to Navajo/Hopi musician J.J. Otero & Son Of Hwéeldi – whose music is a rich blend of rock, soul, blues, and a touch of world beat. Formerly known as Saving Damsels, the band won the 2013 Native American Music Awards for Best Rock Recording and the 2013 New Mexico Music Awards for Best Native song for “Protected (Beauty All Around)” on the album Find My Way. In April of 2017, Son Of Hwéeldi received three New Mexico Music Awards nominations: Best Rock CD for the album 019910; Best World Beat song for “Me & The 99”; Best Native song for “Tó éí ííná át’é”.
