Sage Andrew Romero is from the Big Pine Paiute and Taos Pueblo Tribes. He is an accomplished Hoop Dancer that has traveled throughout the world sharing the hoop dance and Native culture with international audiences to help educate against stereotypes.

Here he is dancing for Matika Wilbur's Project 562 last year:

He has also produced a series of short clips he calls Hoop Stories which highlight his performances across the globe.

When he's not traveling, Sage gives back to his community in Big Pine, California. He founded the AkaMya Culture Group in 1998 to give youth a healthy, safe and positive place to go and learn more about their culture. AkaMya continues the focus of maintaining native culture through song and dance while also utilizing multimedia such as video, art, photography, and music to spread awareness. AkaMya is also a group that is focused on sobriety and working with those that want to connect with their culture. Their performances range from dance presentations, dramatic, funny, educational, and more. Their main goal is to educate in a positive way, while giving youth a positive outlet to be a part of.
