I was six when I had my first dance recital and I was disappointed that I did not have a bigger role. To be fair, I had just started dancing but was determined to not be a little kid and dance with my friends. After my dance was over my mom came over to me and told me how proud of me she was.

This dance was made specifically to connect culture, and to retain the Native American culture. “As colonization became an increasingly critical aspect of Shoshone and Bannock life, ceremony responded to colonization and was transformed.” (Beaulieu 156) In the 1920’s all Native American dance was outlawed, so they took their dances underground. Two young boys created this dance so that they would be able to perform in public. Today this is one of the most popular Shoshone-Bannock dances.
