Indian Boy’s Hoop Dance

This photo was taken on our honeymoon almost 4 years ago (has it been that long?).

The Native American boy was performing a “hoop dance.” If I remember correctly he was eight years old, so he was dancing with eight hoops.  He was weaving them all around his body, making shapes like a a butterfly.  For the finale, he made them into a big sphere around himself, and then danced his way out, holding it triumphantly above his head.  Fascinating!
