Thursday, 10:00 a.m.

Dance is at the heart of Plains Indian culture – used in social and “show” situations (pow-wows), to honor individuals and mark rites of passage, and as an expression of spirituality. The Lakota Sioux Dance Theatre, founded at the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, draws upon the traditions of Lakota Indian educators, healers, community leaders, championship pow-wow dancers, singers and storytellers to present a celebration of Plains Indian culture. Set against a backdrop of spectacular video imagery – and accompanied by live traditional, sacred and courting songs – narrative and creation stories are woven into the fabric of the performance. Recommended for grades 2 & up
