The 6th Annual L.A. SKINS MUSIC FEST is a Native American concert series that celebrates contemporary Native American musicians. Los Angeles has the largest urban population of Native Americans in the United States, totaling 150,000, and has a vast talent pool of Indigenous musicians.

Preceding the concert was our Native American Youth Talent Showcase. This endeavor is designed to encourage Native American youth to explore the performing arts and pursue higher education. Youth are able to showcase their talents to the community and receive an award for their efforts. The overall goal of the project is to encourage music exploration, celebrate the performing arts and raise the awareness of young Native American musicians.

Our Native youth performers were: Destiny Acevedo, Rachel Herrera, Autum Panther, Aleyah Toscano, and Renisha Clara.

The LA SKINS MUSIC FEST was hosted by Rainy Fields. Pictures provided by Antonio Gilbreath Images.
