What the Funk?! An All POC Burlesque Tribute to Funk Music was conceived as a show idea in early 2018 after our founder. Mx. Pucks A’Plenty, thought about doing a classic burlesque number to a Stevie Wonder song, but realizing it wouldn't count as a classic era song choice. This got their wheels turning and What the Funk?! was born. On August 24, 2018 we kicked off two nights of two all POC casts at the historic Jewelbox Theatre in The Rendezvous in Seattle, Washington.
The first inaugural What the Funk?! An All POC Burlesque Festival took place in the Emerald City, aka Seattle, Washington on August 22-24, 2019. What the Funk?! is produced by Puckduction in association with The Stay Up late Show and Powered by Shunpike. Featuring over 40+ performers over the weekend, What the Funk?! hosted three shows and two days of classes.

I have been fortunate. As a native woman my mother cleaned houses and hospital room into her 70s, my father, a WWII Navy vetern, tended bar, dying young of a stroke. They made it possible for me to have a culture, a determination, and a foothold in life.

I am a Spokane, an artist, a mother, a grandmother, a wife, an activist for native rights, a college graduate, an academic Dean, a professor, a speaker, a voice, an American Indian, a human being. I live today.

Holding an Associates degree in Fine Art from The Institute of American Indian Arts, Bachelors in Fine Art from The College of Santa Fe, Masters of Fine Art from the University of Illinois and an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Art from Mitchell College, New London Connecticut.

My art, lecturing and teaching has centered around achieving a national shift in the perception of native people. All too often we are still seen as objects or as a people trapped in the past-tense. We are twenty first century people, and must be seen as such in order to deal with the serious issues that face us today. Yet, even in the aftermath of a momentous civil rights movement we are invisible under the weight of “mythology.” Our Native Students need to be recognized so that they can contribute to the larger community.

Roots and Beats Project fosters positive youth development through media arts education and cultural engagement. Our curriculum merges tradition and technology to weave culturally-rooted digital storytelling focusing on immigrant, refugee and ethnic diaspora experience. We work in partnership with local nonprofits and schools to provide music and multimedia workshops at no cost to underserved youth ages 12-21 years old.

We strive to make our curriculum culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and bilingual, aspects crucial to meet our students where they are. Our work is informed by a belief that when young people feel safe expressing themselves creatively, embracing cultural diversity, and bonding with adult mentors, it unlocks great potential for the development of wide-ranging skills and competencies towards becoming future community leaders.
