About this program

The hoop dance originates from the nations of the southwestern United States. Traditionally used as a medicine, with hoops made from willow branches and primarily danced by the men, this dance has since evolved and changed to what it is today. The intent and purpose remains the same: a medicine to lift the spirits of the people by honouring creation, through this storytelling dance.
