Pamyua members: Phillip and Stephen Blanchett, Ivan Night (guitar) and James Dommek, Jr. (Drums) just returned from Dillingham, Alaska. The band performed to a packed house at the high school. The event was sponsored by the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus in Dillingham and organized for the 2016 Youth Leadership Symposium. The symposium welcomed about 40 high school students from surrounding villages.
Prior to the concert Stephen and Phillip led workshops on leadership and cultural awareness. The workshop discussions were interactive lectures on indigenous heritage and art.
