Live from Minneapolis, ‘American Indians Got Talent’!

A lot of Indian country’s biggest entertainers came together last weekend for the Twin Cities American Indian Arts Festival. We’re talking guitarist Gabriel Ayala, rapper Chase Manhattan, the Bluedog Band, comedian Tito Ybarra (you loved him in “Slapping Medicine Man”). But we were pretty pleased to find these clips from the Festival’s open-mic event “American Indians Got Talent!” The following are all first-, second-, or third-place winners in either the “adult” or “17-and-under” category. At the bottom of the page, we tell you who won what—but how would you have scored it?

(A note of thanks to Monica Boutwell of Schamburg, IL’s Trickster Gallery for shooting the videos.)
