Native American Dance and Music

November 29, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm


Dance has been the defining element of Derrick Suwaima Davis’ life. A master at maneuvering five rattan hoops around his body, he is the only adult seven-time Hoop Dance World Champion. He conveys the Hopi story of creation through his hoops — creating intricate patterns while keeping time to the singing and drumming of Ryon Polyquaptewa.
