10:30 AM: Nature Walk led by Ethan Ortega
11:15 AM: Native American Storytelling with Emmett "Shkeme" Garcia

The Coronado Historic Site, located just north of Albuquerque in Bernalillo, offers beautiful vistas, an interpretive trail winding through architectural remnants of a once-thriving Pueblo Indian village, nature paths leading to covered picnic tables that overlook the Rio Grande, reconstructions of a kiva and a habitation unit, and a gallery of remarkable centuries-old wall paintings housed in a room designed by renowned architect John Gaw Meem. 

Native Roots was formed in 1997 by musician John L. Williams (Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux) and lyricist/vocalist Emmett "Shkeme" Garcia (Santa Ana Pueblo) to reach out with a message of pride, unity, and respect among all nations, through the universal language of music. This dynamic and award-winning combination has produced three CDs that have propelled Native Roots into the Native American and Reggae music scene as the premier Native American Reggae band whose music is Native American written, produced, and performed.

Native Roots contributes their solid reggae foundation to the influence it has had on Native American communities. Native Roots is a natural extension of growing up, living and loving reggae music. John Williams' extensive musical background in working with different styles of music has allowed him to incorporate various elements into the music without compromising the essential reggae feel.  In addition, "Shkeme's" singing style reflects not only a variety of reggae styles, but also reflects years of experience singing both traditional pueblo and pow wow music. The blending Native influences such as traditional drums, rattles, chants, language and flute, with a variety of reggae styles including ragamuffin, one drop, rockers, and dancehall, makes Native Roots' music unique. Lyrical themes include the importance of traditional languages and culture, spirituality, respect for our elders, the sacredness of our youth, and love.
