    Lamanite Generation Performs in Spain

    Brigham Young University’s Lamanite Generation recently traveled to Spain. Their appearances there, supported in large part by the United States Information Agency, offered a twist on the 500th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the Americas. While the famous navigator traveled from Spain to a New World and encountered Indians, the Lamanite Generation traveled from the New World to discover the land of Columbus.

    The show, “Living Legends,” wove indigenous Indian dances into a forty-minute concert of dance and song. The group was also filmed for a thirty-minute show to be broadcast throughout Europe.

    The troupe is composed of thirty dancers and singers, all Native Americans, Latin Americans, or Polynesians.
