Alongside her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values with convulsive results.

Celebrate American Indian Heritage Month and support Indigenous musicians!

Having been featured on JazzTimes, NPR, Yahoo, MIC.com, SiriusXM, TED Talks and more, D'DAT has been described in the aforementioned terms for good reason. Combining the inspirational and heartfelt lyrics of James Pakootas with the hard - driving instrumental fire of award-winning trumpet player Delbert Anderson, the deep funk of international touring artist and drummer Nicholas Lucero, and the intellectually explorative and expanding groove of Mike McCluhan on bass, D'DAT has carved its own path with high desert-forged influences and world-class musicianship.

DDAT is just at home in an intimate venue as it is on a festival stage, as the past several years have proven The group has burned up smaller clubs, but it also has taken part in such memorable international collaborations as its concert with Mongolian master throat singer Baatarjav Erdene Tsogt. It has played beautiful theaters throughout the US and Canada, while performing in high- profile outdoor settings such as the Taos Vortex Festival, the Ridgecrest Petroglyph Festival, iGlobalquerque! DDAT also has been featured at TED X and performed its trademark "DDAT Suite" with a full wind symphony at Eastern New Mexico State University. Regardless of the setting, DDAT consistently delivers memorable performances with literally no boundaries.

Celebrate American Indian Heritage Month and support Indigenous musicians!

Having been featured on JazzTimes, NPR, Yahoo, MIC.com, SiriusXM, TED Talks and more, D'DAT has been described in the aforementioned terms for good reason. Combining the inspirational and heartfelt lyrics of James Pakootas with the hard - driving instrumental fire of award-winning trumpet player Delbert Anderson, the deep funk of international touring artist and drummer Nicholas Lucero, and the intellectually explorative and expanding groove of Mike McCluhan on bass, D'DAT has carved its own path with high desert-forged influences and world-class musicianship.

DDAT is just at home in an intimate venue as it is on a festival stage, as the past several years have proven The group has burned up smaller clubs, but it also has taken part in such memorable international collaborations as its concert with Mongolian master throat singer Baatarjav Erdene Tsogt. It has played beautiful theaters throughout the US and Canada, while performing in high- profile outdoor settings such as the Taos Vortex Festival, the Ridgecrest Petroglyph Festival, iGlobalquerque! DDAT also has been featured at TED X and performed its trademark "DDAT Suite" with a full wind symphony at Eastern New Mexico State University. Regardless of the setting, DDAT consistently delivers memorable performances with literally no boundaries.
