The second in the Tekcno Powwow performance series took place in 2007 at Colorado College. Tekcno Powwow 2 narrows the focus of Tekcno Powwow 1's all inclusive dance exploration to just the fields of breakdance and powwow. In so doing, a deeper exploration of the societal role of dance and music is possible and the piece reveals how firmly music and dance are embedded in different cultural communities and how they reflect the values of and, at the same time, they sustain those communities. It also explores how cultural groups influence each other and how historical dance forms, like traditional Native dance, are still alive today and have influenced contemporary forms of dance and formed the root of those new dances. This piece involved approximately 16 dancers total from two groups-the powwow group is The Rocky Mountain Dancers and Singers from Denver (now called the Rocky Mountain American Indian Dance Group) and the break dance crew is Soul Mechanics from Colorado Springs with DJ Prominent. This is a short excerpt, the actual performance was over 2 hours long. The piece also included performances by Bently Spang and artist Marcus Amerman and dancer Colin Epstein who danced the silks for the crowd. The piece took place in 2007 at Colorado College in Colorado Springs and Bently Spang was the director/creator and the gold-lame-bedecked co-emcee along with Jacob Flesher from Soul Mechanics and Lance Allrunner (Rest in Peace brother) from the Rocky Mountain Dancers and Singers. This video is dedicated to the memory of Lance Allrunner.
