Young Swan Rising

From the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla Nation, Oregon State.

The times runs by and several summers we had great conversations with Acosias mom, Loveda. Acosia was busy dancing on great stages around the world, but FINALLY one summer we manage to meet, and we all knew this was the very first beginning of something really good.
From there, it was a lot of surreal dreams, emailing, composing and planning, but only one year after we manage to bring Acosia to Norway! In september 2019 IWASHERE had our first stage appearance and we were so trilled to have Acosia with us on stage.
The collaboration together with Acosia is very precious to us and we look forward to materialise so much more together in the future.
Acosia is like a dancing light of wisdom and realisation. She carries a powerful voice, not only as a cultural carrier of history and as a dancer, but for the new generations of youths that are longing to hear a clear and distinct voice that they can relate to. Acosia has already become an ikon and for good reasons. She´s a true worrier of light!
