Native Urban Youth Dancers

Native Urban Youth Dancers

This group performed at Omaha's Earth Day.

Unfortunately, The suicidal rate is 15% higher for the young male Native American population. Listening to today's storyteller of an Eight Grader named Israel brought me to tears..as he remembered stories from his grandfather in South Dakota about the Grass Dance and the Butterfly Dance. He drummed and sang with his cousins. Many of the dancers were from the Omaha and Lakota tribes.
