White Sands National Park to Honor Native American Heritage Month

October 29 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


ALAMOGORDO – White Sands National Park, will honor the start of Native American Heritage Month by holding a special concert on Sunday October 29, 2023, at 6:30 pm.

In partnership with Western National Parks Association, we are pleased to have Randy Granger from Las Cruces, New Mexico perform at the park’s October Full Moon Night program. Randy is a professional musician, storyteller, educator, composer, and recording artist. A multiple award-winning musician, he tours the U.S. as a solo artist headlining many festivals, leading workshops, and teaching at Native American flute schools throughout the U.S.

Join Randy for a relaxing fall evening on Sunday, October 29, at 6:30 p.m. in the park’s natural outdoor amphitheater. Randy will fill the moonlit night with his unique blend of instruments, interpretation of traditional melodies, and heartfelt music. The program is free, but park entrance fees will apply. The parking lot will open at 5:30 pm. Seating is not provided at the amphitheater. You are encouraged to set up on the surrounding dunes and bring camp chairs, blankets, and coolers with food and drinks.

A native of New Mexico, Randy is of Mayan and Apache heritage and specializes in the Native American flute, storytelling, and other acoustic instruments. Randy plays and records with numerous percussion instruments, world flutes, and stringed instruments.

This is the final of the three Full Moon Night programs White Sands is hosting this year featuring the cultural legacy of Southern New Mexico and the rich natural resources of White Sands in partnership with Western National Parks Association. These events are a great opportunity to have a unique experience with the whole family under the light of the full moon.
