Bio:

Ria Thundercloud is from the Ho-Chunk Nation and Sandia Pueblo. Ria has always held strong ties to her kinship in both the southwest and north, practicing both styles of traditional dance. She started training in classical dance at the age of 13 then went professional at the age of 16, where she has traveled as a cultural ambassador and professional dancer internationally. Ria is a 2019 graduate from Institute of American Indian Arts in Indigenous Liberal Studies and holistic yoga teacher from Healing Lotus Center. Ria’s art is influenced by the woman who came before her, reclaiming stories of matriarchs that highlight the resilience and knowledge of indigenous women.

Every month at the Santa Fe Playhouse, two Santa Fe non-profit organizations come together to give you a monthly showcase of local, regional, and national indigenous performing talent.

Curated by Goiyo Perez, Performing Arts Coordinator of SWAIA. This program is a monthly installation, on the last Monday of the month on the stage of the Santa Fe Playhouse.

Every installation will focus on a different Indigenous performing artist be they musicians, dancers, poets etc. We hope to pair the performing art with a lobby installation featuring a visual artist.

A collaboration between Santa Fe Playhouse and SWAIA, who happen to share a birth year of 1922!
