Tara Evonne Trudell

Tara Evonne Trudell (daughter of Native American poet John Trudell) is a student of the Media Arts with a concentration in Film and Audio. She is passionate about combining poetry and film to create a visual art form of her own. Her art focuses on being socially aware and conscious of the injustices that plague our society. Social conscious is a top priority as a she rediscovers her own word in a world that only attempts to silence the Indigenous spirit. Her goal is to illuminate the Indigenous spirit through performance art. She is of Mexican, Spanish, and Santee Sioux descent and cultivates a vision which includes representation of her ancestors and earth.


~ born in Los Angeles but raised on global culture, AHA BEAT (born Aaron Moore, and performing with guest artists) aims to embody the 21st century citizen of the world. The recognition of equality & humanity of all people fuels AHA BEAT’s necessity to create music with a potent message. AHA BEAT has a sound that integrates the best elements of rock, reggae, hip hop, and folk music. Whether you are bumping your head to the rhythms, or listening intently with your heart and head to the savvy lyrics, there is something for everyone, young and old.

Sponsored by: RCNV, Project ReGeneration, SCCCCOR (Santa Cruz Community Coalition to Overcome Racism), and the Springfield Grange.
