Tha ‘Yoties, whose music addresses the cultural concerns of the Indigenous population of the Four Corners region, will perform a tribute to the 1970s group, XIT, to raise awareness for the issues broached almost 50 years ago that continue to effect Indigenous people today.
Founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1972, XIT was a Native American rock band whose music frequently featured motifs of historic and contemporary Native American issues and was considered by many to be the soundtrack of American Indian Movement. This is part of the Indigenous Insights series.

We are proud to present the 3rd Flagstaff edition of the world-famous music happening/parade/caroling (no singing) Unsilent Night by Phil Kline.
ABOUT UNSILENT NIGHT:
Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer.
HOW TO JOIN US:
Phil Kline’s public sound sculpture Unsilent Night is created when many individuals simultaneously play one of four tracks on cassette, CD, mp3, or mobile devices, and blast each through a roving swarm of boomboxes and speakers carried through city streets. Here is a link for all of the information that you need: http://unsilentnight.com/participate.html
WHERE TO MEET/OUR PATH:
Meet us at 4:30 pm on Saturday, December 7th outside of the main entrance of the Performing Arts building on the NAU Campus. We will begin walking at 5:00 and end up at Heritage Square after sundown.
