Culture | Native American Hoop Dance

 

Hoop Dance

We encountered a hoop dancer at our stop on the way to Antelope Canyon. He gave us an explanation of the dance and what it symbolizes.

There’s a yearly competition in Arizona that I would love to attend.

  1. Hi elleplum!

    apologies on my late reply but a quick summary is:

    they use the hoops as life is a cycle it goes round and round. Part of the dance is going through the hoop which is sort of how one goes through things in life.

    There are more to it and the TedTalk in the links I’ve added is the one that explains it the best.
