The Grand Canyon is an ageless wonder of the world. Though 2019 marks the Grand Canyon’s centennial as a national park, it has been home to Indigenous people for millennia. In response to the park’s anniversary, “Rumble on the Rim” took place at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park on July 27, 2019.

The event combined educational presentations with entertainment that featured Indigenous voices from the Colorado Plateau. Rumble on the Rim focused specifically on the history of Grand Canyon from an Indigenous perspective.

Speakers and performers included Ed Kabotie & Tha ‘Yoties, The Antelope Track Dance Group (Hopi), Davona Blackhorse, Havasupai Guardians of Grand Canyon, Havasupai Youth Ram dancers, Grammy nominee Radmilla Cody, Save the Confluence, Ryon Polequaptewa and World Champion Hoop Dancer Derrick Davis.
