“Everyone was like, ‘Aw, he’s so cute,’ and he kind of stole the show because he was dancing with all of us adults,” Desjarlais gushed to CTV Edmonton on Monday.
Desjarlais said her son learned to dance by watching YouTube videos of powwow dancers and attending Indigenous events with his family.
“He listens to the songs very well,” she said. “He’s aware of what you are supposed to do in certain parts of the song. He’s basically self-taught.”
