A journey with Tau exploring the ingenuity of indigenous artists in the here and now.  Hawai’i is our land and cultural host as we take an artistic trip into our glorious “Global Village”.  Contemporary native based music and dance expressions of indigenous artists from Northern Cheyenne, Zuni/Omaha and Tlingit nations, intermingling with the evolved artistic vision of Tau, brings Oceania to a magical place of MANA.  Honoring ancestral knowledge while encouraging responsible evolution, Tau sets the stage for an artistic gift for generations to come.  

Featuring guest artists, Shelley Morningsong Fontenelle(Northern Cheyenne) 2019 Artist of the Year Award – Native American Music Awards, Fabian Fontenelle (Zuni/Omaha) 2018 1st Place Traditional Male Dancer Gathering of Nations and native RAP sensation, Arias Hoyle (Tlingit) together with Yuko Anami Ballet & HIT’S Dance Space from Japan all bring their exceptional talents to support Tau’s, vision. Hawaii sensation Pōmaikaʻi Lyman together with Tau Dance Theater and TAU Y2 weave this fabulous production into a once in a lifetime experience!  Behold, INDIGENUITY!
