Event Description

INDIGENOUS MUSIC/DANCE DUO with Special Guest Frank Waln 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2021  |  7:30 P.M. 

Performing Native hoop dance to hip-hop, two Minneapolis brothers have revitalized an age-old tradition. Lumhe and Samsoche Sampson (Mvskoke Creek/Seneca) have been hoop dancing for nearly 30 years. The duo strives to give back to their tribe by promoting cultural pride, unity, and hope by setting a positive example through art, music, and dance. Award-winning Sicangu Lakota hip-hop artist and music producer from South Dakota’s Rosebud Reservation, Frank Waln, guest stars sharing his music, rap, and spoken word. Witness and experience Indigenous hoop dance from a unique perspective through evolutionary artistry from these 21st century warriors. 

Free UD student admission made possible by the Office of Young Adult Formation, Office of Multicultural Student Engagement, and Office of First-Year Experience.
