It is very interesting to me. Since childhood, I traditional Indian culture. Now examine the modern revival of the indigenous culture of Siberia (where I live). However, I would very much like to have contacts with the Indians of America, especially in the current situation and Siberian natives have common elements. When I was watching this dance on video, I said soul.
