The Hoop Dance originates from the Taos Pueblo of New Mexico, as a way of healing. The modern form of hoop dancing has since become an intertribal dance and is now shared at social gatherings and powwows alike. The dancer uses hoops to create images and shapes that represent the many beautiful creations on Mother Earth. The hoop dance teaches us that we must respect and honor all of life as we are all connected in this great circle of life. We celebrate that connection with ...the Hoop Dance.
Tony Duncan was taught to hoop dance at the age of 5 years old. This tradition was passed down from his father Ken Duncan Sr. Carrying on the family tradition is Tony's son Naiche. At 6 years old, Naiche has started his journey into the world of hoop dancing. The circle, stories, and traditions continue.
