Lakota Hoop Dance 

Dallas Chief Eagle, Jr., a member of the Rosebud Sioux tribe, has been a Hoopdancer for 36 years. For Chief Eagle, the hoop dance is more than a dance – it is a way of keeping Lakota traditions alive. The ancient and honorable tradition of the hoop dance explains the Plains Indian worldview as the hoops intersect and grow into more complex shapes, always and forever returning to the beginning. He will be joined on stage by his daughter Starr Chief Eagle.
