Performer, Speaker, Artistic Director, Choreographer - Derrick Suwaima Davis
Derrick Suwaima Davis is a Native Arizonan, from the Hopi and Choctaw Nations. Suwaima, who began
participating in Pow Wows at the age of 3, is the only adult, SEVEN Time World Champion Hoop Dancer and a
Champion Fancy Dancer. Suwaima is the 2014 Champion!
In addition to dancing competitively and professionally, Suwaima is also a gifted Choreographer & Artistic
Director. He currently serves (and has for the last 12 years) as Artistic Director for “Native Trails” in Scottsdale.
Suwaima has been honored to be named Artist of the Year – Performing Arts category – by the Scottsdale
Cultural Council, for his contribution to the Arts community.
Suwaima was a member of the pop/rock group “Clan/destine” and he has also worked with the Heard Museum,
The Phoenix Symphony, The American Indian Dance Theater, Canyon Records and Willie Nelson. He was also
honored to be designated as Head Man Dancer at the Inaugural Pow Wow at the Smithsonian National Museum
of the American Indian.
After having performed internationally sharing his interpretation of hoop dance in places such as Germany,
Spain, Australia, Denmark, Malaysia, Africa, Japan and Singapore, in recent years Suwaima has turned his
attention to presenting the people and cultures of the Southwestern U.S. via The Living Traditions Dance Troupe.
Suwaima speaks regularly on First Nations history, culture, and issues of importance to Native people. He was
recently asked to record a PSA for the Arizona Dept. of Health Services on Diabetes Prevention, an issue about
which he is passionate. Suwaima is involved with his community in many ways, including serving on the Miss
Hopi Pageant Committee.
Suwaima has appeared as a model in Marie Clare and his image can be seen on everything from billboards, to
Heard Museum and Arizona Office of Tourism ads, to a US Postal Service campaign. Auspicious publications
Suwaima has been featured in include Smithsonian (cover), Native Peoples (3 covers), Phoenix Home & Garden
(as Master Dancer of the Southwest), and Cosmopolitan (man of the month), Dance Life Magazine (cover)
Arizona Highways Magazine, as well as many newspaper articles.
Along with his dance troupe and as a solo artist, Suwaima regularly performs in theatrical productions, school
programs, concerts, festivals, corporate shows, key note speaking, and other special events.

Regarding the Speaker openings. I'd like to express Connecting.nyc Inc.'s experiences with the introduction of the .nyc TLD and the role we are playing, now that the .nyc is live.
Presentation Title: "Public Engagement in the new city-TLD application process: Past and Future."
With the "GNSO New gTLDs Subsequent Rounds Discussion Group" just beginning, the At-Large's engagement with that process is timely. As a member of that group, I would also bring attendees up to date with those developments.
IMHO, most important is that the At-Large express its intention to be part of that process, and explore how local residents (users and potential users) can be part of their local city-TLD application development process.
my two cents.
P.S Tom's NYC experience definitely worth sharing. Maybe a fireside chat, as opposed to a presentation style?
Good suggestion Murray. I'll review my FDR newsreels for pointers.
