Tribal Vision Festival


If you are interested in setting up camp at the festival with the Traveling Shamans from Grand Junction, please contact Julia Widdop at 970-200-LOVE. Discount tickets are available until March 1.

Tribal Vision Festival is an annual event which aims to bring awareness to global indigenous ceremony, culture & tradition amongst the backdrop of an awesome community inspired festival. we curate an amazing line up of eclectic musicians and a wide variety of workshops including leading-edge sustainable living practices,  well being and creative expression.

This is a benefit event - all profits from the festival are donated to a chosen indigenous preservation project. (we have yet to decide 2018’s cause.)

We have hosted elders and indigenous activists such as Pat McCabe, Lylaa June Johnston, Aumrak Sapper (Mayan priestess), Flor de Mayo (13 grandmothers), Chief Marvin Swallow, Nandhili, Yamato, and Grandma Rose Romero (Taos Pueblo). In the past, our workshops have featured some of the most profound teachers of our time, including Paul Stamets (author of bestseller Mycelium Running), "Bioneer" Miguel Santestevan, astrologist Kaypacha (with the Pele report) and Lisa Wimberger of the Neurosculpting Institute in Colorado.

We have been blessed with performances by musical artists including Supaman, Elephant Revival, Nahko & the medicine for the people, Lynx & Janover, Lunar Fire, Xerephine, Thealcapones, and Intuit.

The following is a brief historical outline and description of the landscape and culture that contributes to the magic of Taos, NM. Taos, a vastly beautiful high mountain desert town steeped in traditional culture, is the backdrop for TVF. This land is traditional stomping grounds for the Mescalero Apache, Taos pueblo Tiwa and many other tribes. The Taos Pueblo region’s structures are the oldest buildings in North America which are still inhabited today. this region has been inhabited for over 3000 years and is one of the few pueblos to preserve their mud buildings and culture mostly uninterrupted from the gentrification of the united states.


The Artist as Shaman

“In the mythic tradition, both artists and shamans walk perilously close to the realm of madness; indeed, in some cases, their gifts specifically come from journeying into madness, or Faerie, or the Realm of the Gods and then back again.”

The Role of Art in Shamanism

By Visionary Artist and Shamanic Practitioner Katherine Skaggs

 As an artist, and shamanic practitioner, I have been interested in the healing powers of art for some time now. Growing up as an artist, I had no idea of the power of art, I just loved to create and replicate. As time has passed and I have grown older I have experienced art as a doorway to healing, and awakening consciousness. And as I stepped onto the shamanic pathway, I began to see how shamanic cultures throughout time have understood the deep healing power of art, and its capacity to express the wisdom of the soul, as well as bring healing to the mind, body and spirit.
