Uncommon Ground Lakeview Presents: An intimate dinner performance from Native American Artists Lyla June, Frank Waln and Tanaya Winder.

Lyla June is a musician, poet, anthropologist, educator, community organizer and public speaker. Many hats, but the underlying prayer is always the same.

Lyla and her friends are generating a new genre of Indigenous music that inspires youth. While the Taos, New Mexico-based artist is known world-wide for her leadership as a Native Scholar and champion for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Stanford Graduate is also an award-winning singer/songwriter & performance poet.

A recipient of the Gates Millennium Scholarship, Waln attended Columbia College Chicago where he received a BA in Audio Arts and Acoustics.

He has been featured in Buzzfeed, The Fader, Playboy, Vibe, NPR, ESPN, and MTVs Rebel Music Native America. Waln has written for various publications including Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education, and Society and The Guardian. Frank Waln travels the world telling his story through performance and doing workshops focusing on self-empowerment and expression of truth.

----------

Tanaya Winder is a writer, educator, motivational speaker, and performance poet from the Southern Ute, Duckwater Shoshone, and Pyramid Lake Paiute Nations. She grew up on the Southern Ute Indian reservation and attended college at Stanford University where she earned a BA in English and the University of New Mexico where she received an MFA in creative writing. Since then she has co-founded As/Us: A Space for Women of the World and founded Dream Warriors, an Indigenous artist management company. She guest lectures, teaches creative writing workshops, and speaks at high schools, universities, and communities internationally. Tanaya writes and teaches about different expressions of love (self love, intimate love, social love, community love, and universal love); she is an advocate of heartwork and believes everyone has a gift theyve been placed on this earth to share.
