Hoops of Hope & Resilience
Dave Locklear
“The Hoops of Hope and Resilience are a family group of hoop dancers from Cattaraugus Territory of the Seneca Nation. The Seneca people are known as “The keepers of the Western Door.” Founding members include Darice Sampson, Cece Young, Rachel Schindler, and Cassius Alvarado-Sampson! Spanning three generations, they create their own regalia, incorporating beadwork into the sewing of each custom design. This event features a special mother-daughter debut, Jocelyn Jones and Wiyöhs Printup. We will be performing multiple styles of native dances for you.”
Join us summer and fall 2024 for more Native exhibits and programs across AFNHA, including August 16-17th and November 9th.
