What a great way to show your support by dancing! Compiled by Sage Romero from the AkaMya Cultural Dance Group, hoop dancers from Canada and USA come together in this beautiful video to dance in solidarity with the peace camps protecting the water and land against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Cannonball, ND.
“Hoop Dancing has been offered as a healing for the people, and in this spirit, Hoop Dancers danced to raise awareness of the #NoDAPL Movement, and also for the 7th Generation Awakening.”
Hoop Dancers featured in the video include:
Daleana Uses Knife- Mnicoujou Lakota, Cheyenne River
Sandra Lamouche- Cree
Micheal Goedel- Yakama, Tulalip, Lumbee
Sage Romero- Paiute, Taos Pueblo
Shanley Spence- Cree, Saulteaux
Terry Goedel- Yakama, Tulalip, Lumbee
Evangelina Lopez- Blackfeet, Gros Ventre, Assiniboine
Tisha Marina- Indigenous
So great to see! Thanks again for getting everyone together on this!
