  • Christian DiRado Owens

    •Performer

    Christian DiRado-Owens comes to Galumpha with gratitude and a voracious appetite. As a dancer, he brings a few fond years of experience in Morris folk dancing with the Binghamton Morris Men. Outside of dance, Christian received a B.S. in Development Sociology from Cornell University and an M.A. in Native American Languages and Linguistics from the University of Arizona. He has worked at home and abroad in the fields of sustainable food systems, nutrition, food justice, and Indigenous language reclamation as a farm to school coordinator in Upstate NY; a food rescue coordinator in Binghamton, NY; a dietary diversity researcher in South-Central India; a farmhand in Colombia; and a field linguist in Arizona and in the Northwest Amazon. Christian likes to cook and eat with his friends and family, spend time in nature, and stretch as much meaning and magic out of the honey-laden filo dough of life as possible. He is grateful for the opportunity to dance with Gil and Andy. Currently, his favorite fruits are wild strawberries.
