Sage Andrew Romero is a member of the Tovowahamatu Numu (Big Pine Paiute) and Tuah-Tahi (Taos Pueblo) Tribes. He is an accomplished Hoop Dancer and has traveled internationally sharing the Culture of his people through song, story, dance and art. Sage also founded the AkaMya Culture Group which first began as a group that provided a safe place and space to learn and practice culture for youth and families while also striving to be a positive role model for the Native youth and live a life of Sobriety away from Drugs and Alcohol. Sage recently completed building the first of its kind Cultural Studio named in honor of his recently passed Mother, the “Margaret L. Romero Cultural Studio”. This Studio will be a resource for media and creative endeavors within the community. Utilizing our own resources we have provided the community with events, productions, fundraising Cultural activities and more. Through our traditional and contemporary living culture, Arts, Film, and Animation projects, he hopes to instill pride within the youth and community so they may continue carrying on the traditions for future generations.
