Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, actress and mental health advocate, Jewel, will co-host the “Voices of Siihasin” Benefit Concert together with celebrated artist, Lyla June, a Diné environmental scientist, doctoral student, educator, community organizer and musician, on Sunday, July 5 at 2:00 pm PT / 5:00 pm ET.

Amy Yeung (Diné), founder of Orenda Tribe, an Indigenous-owned, upcycled clothing brand, and her dear friend, Jewel, created this event after witnessing the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the Diné Tribe.

“We have been #1 in COVID positive cases for far too long. It has been really traumatic for our little ones, as it has been for all of our children,” explains Yeung. “Our youth are sacred to us. They are the future of our people and we want them to know we love them, that we honor them and that we are here for them.”
