Here from the Wind River Indian Reservation, home to the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes, and a decade of sharing the history and cultures of Native Peoples through song and dance.

A presentation by the Wind River Dancers is set to capture the crowds with their educational and entertaining performance. Not only will they share the culture of the Native Peoples through song and dance but they will also be representing the nations’ history as the different styles of their songs and apparel display ceremonial importance. The Wind River Dancers have traveled considerably for over a decade while focusing on local venues throughout Wyoming and Colorado.

Their performances, however, are not geographically limited - they express styles from many of the reservations that span the country. Drawing on varied dance styles from many native North American tribes, each tells of its origination and representation in the dance circle with an accompanying song. Many of the dances originated in ceremonies, and have been adopted by Indian Country in a more contemporary form, still honoring their healing powers.

The Wind River Dancers also compete in powwows and have traveled extensively for over a decade sharing the history and cultures of Native Peoples. This presentation has been performed for both educational and entertainment purposes at multiple venues throughout Wyoming and Colorado.
