Check out this documentary called "SOUSA ON THE REZ: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum." It is a half-hour documentary that looks at the vibrant but little-known tradition of brass band music in Indian Country. The phrase “Native American music” may not suggest tubas and trumpets, but march music has been a part of Native culture for over a century.
Many were first exposed to this music at boarding schools, where the regimented discipline of marching bands was a key component of the program of forced assimilation. Nevertheless, many Native Americans discovered a love of, and talent for, these genres of music and made them their own.
This film profiles two contemporary Indian community bands: the Iroquois Indian Band of upstate New York and the Fort Mojave Tribal Band of Needles, California. The documentary traces the origins of these groups to their founding over a century ago and uncovers a secret history of the 20th century, when "all Indian bands" toured the US and abroad.

The Café’s food philosophy is the reason its menus and meals have become a popular draw to our community. Our philosophy is to find a celebration that falls on each Saturday (or close to it) from any tradition or place on the planet.
Each week the Chef team searches the world for these opportunities to celebrate our community. We embrace cuisine from around the world and bring it to the table for all to eat. Our desire is to provide palette-expanding opportunities that meet the needs of all our guests.
Our food is made from scratch – rarely opening cans or boxes – and meets the needs of any dietary preference or restriction. Our weekly menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free foods as well as meat or fish protein options.
We believe that when we sit down together and share a meal we become a beloved community – a family who shares times of celebration and traditions.
