Native American Drum & Dance Troop
The rhythmic thumping of drums coupled with the shouts and whirls of brightly dressed dancers are key components in Native American culture past and present. Having the privilege of watching a demonstration of various dances, once reserved only for tribal members, provides visitors an opportunity to better understand the traditions and heritage of Native Americans.
As part of Native American Heritage Month, this November, the USAHEC is excited to welcome performers from the Red Blanket Drum and Dance Troop on Monday, November 14, 2016 at 7:00PM. These traditional Native American dancers will demonstrate ceremonial and social dancing techniques passed down from their ancestors for centuries. The demonstration will include authentic dress, free-style movements, and sacred songs, enhanced by the deep base of drums and coupled with examples of indigenous vocals, and flute music.
