Wide in appeal, the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers has made an enormous contribution to the effort of preserving and perpetuating American Indian culture for more than 25 years. The ensemble’s repertoire includes dances of the Woodlands (Iroquois and Winnebago), Plains (Sioux) and the Southwest (Hopi and Santo Domingo). Selections will also include the traditional “Fancy Dance” and “Hoop Dance,” as well as a variety of other distinct regional tribal dances.
