Byron Chief-Moon is a multi-talented actor, stuntman, dancer, choreographer playwright, and founder of the Coyote Arts Percussive Performance Association. Through art and life, his story is one of cultural survival.
Themes of Chief-Moon’s dance creations begin with his people's traditional stories, his attachment to the land and his community, as well as the inner conflict he faces in existing within the Aboriginal culture and society at large. He is ensuring the preservation of his native language through its incorporation into his work, and he's adamant that the spoken legends of his people are passed on to the next generation, and to the greater community.
Challenging the cultural construct is never easy, but Chief-Moon does so with steadfast determination and spirit.
