Dance of the North American Plains Indians
Four Winds Native American Dance Company, founded by Eddie Madril, has been performing for over 20 years, specializing in the dance and culture of the United States Plains Indian tribes from Southern Canada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma, commonly found at inter-tribal gatherings (powwows) throughout the United States. Four Winds has performed to critical acclaim throughout the western United States, most notably at the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival and the 1984 Olympic Games.

Eddie Madril (solo Four Winds performer in People Like Me 2006) presents residencies throughout Bay Area schools that encourage students to develop appreciation and respect for, and explore the environment around them through American Indian dance, music, cultural history, art and American Indian sign language. Eddie has taught American Indian music at San Francisco State and was a three-year recipient of the California Arts Council Artist-in-Residence grant.
