Standing Rock Dancers
Standing Rock Indian Reservation straddles the border between North and South Dakota. Their youth program reaches over 500 youth and focus on projects that have strong ties to the culture. Since 2005, their group has traveled off the reservation to share the culture by performing traditional dance. Four youth will be performing traditional dance. Two young women will be showcasing the Women's Traditional Dance, one young man will be doing Men's Traditional, and one young man will be sharing our tradition by performing the Grass Dance. All five youth will be available share what life on the reservation is like for a young person. All five of the youth are enrolled members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
