Pete Sands (Navajo/Diné), UFO Researcher, Musician, Filmmaker
Bio: Pete Sands is a Musician/Filmmaker from Southern Utah and a long time UFO/Paranormal researcher. Born and raised on the Navajo-Indian reservation Sands was surrounded from childhood by elders who taught him stories about aliens, UFO’s, and the paranormal. His research into the paranormal began in the latter years of his high school education. It was the legendary visitation by Navajo demigods in May of 1996 that sparked a new interest in the paranormal. Sands started research on the connections made between his Navajo culture and to other cultures worlds away. During his time at Weber State University Sands immersed himself into the idea of the “Ancient Astronaut” theory and began presenting his research on panels around campus. Sands soon found himself delving into filmmaking and started a podcast called “the Nightly Truckin Sessions” which broadcasted live from paranormal hotspots, like: Skinwalked Ranch, Canyon De Chelly, etc. Currently Sands and his film company “SidewinderTV” are filming a new series focusing on Native Americans and their connections to extraterrestrials.
*Note: More information is in the pipeline and will be announced soon as we finalize our list of pending speakers and filmmakers. The Utah UFO Fest is also a grassroots organization which means we are open and inclusive of other researchers who would like to add a venue or an idea to our event.
