Wednesday, Nov. 6 | 7-8:30 p.m. | Gaede Stage
Join us for an evening of celebrating Native American Heritage with a performance by nationally known comedienne, Tonia Jo Hall.
Tonia Jo has a unique perspective on life as a Native American, specifically for women. Not only is she funny; she is also a professional jingle dress dancer and a voting rights advocate. She is well-known and respected in the community for her work and positive representation of Native American Heritage.
After the show, stick around for a Q&A with Tonia Jo to learn more about Native American Heritage.
In 2011, Tonia began producing Youtube videos as a means to “reach out to my people; teach them to smile, think positively, and spread laughter.” She graduated from Sitting Bull College in Fort Yates, North Dakota with her BA degree in 2014. Tonia is Lakota/Dakota/Hidatsa, a mother of two, and she’s been pursuing comedy full-time since 2014. Tonia brought her comedy to the stage in 2011. Since then, she’s been busy producing videos, motivational speaking, doing stand-up comedy at various casinos, celebrations, and events throughout the U.S. and Canada.
