HEAD DANCERS MARCOS & CRYSTAL MADRIL

 

Marcos Madril is Pascua Yaqui.  Crystal Madril is Jicarilla Apache and Filipino. Today, October 10, we celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary.  Both Marcos and Crystal were raised going to pow-wows and being active in the Native American community.   Currently, we make our home in the bay area and enjoy powwowing with our family and teaching our daughter the ways and traditions that we have been given. We are honored to serve as head staff at this year's pow-wow.
