The Sampson Brothers, Lumhe and Samsoche (Seneca and Muscogee Creek) blend traditional Native hoop dance with hip-hop at ground zero of the American Indian Movement: Minneapolis.

KQED, in their newest series titled “If Cities Could Talk” showcases the brother's talents in their very first episode.

Their mother, an acclaimed fancy shawl dancer, had them taking dance lessons from an early age. They spent their childhoods in Los Angeles, where their late father, Will Sampson, was establishing himself as a Native American actor in mainstream cinema—he played Chief Bromden in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.



Make sure you tune in and share to support the Sampson Brothers! Have you seen a Hoop Dance before?
