Today is Native American Day! The states of California and Nevada celebrate this day on the fourth Friday of September each year. This day honors Native American cultures and contributions to our country. As dance enthusiasts, one of our favorite contributions any culture can give is movement-based, and we are so thankful for Native American dance.
In honor of the holiday, we thought we would share three different videos of these dances that have inspired us.
1. Hoop Dance
2. Men’s Grass Dance
3. Fancy War Dance
4. If you have a bit more time on your hands, check out this video of the Native Pride Dancers shared by the Kennedy Center!
