Video: Warm Springs dancers at Hood River Middle School

February 10, 2012

The sight and sound of Native American tradition pounded loud and clear Thursday at Hood River Middle School as eighth graders and students from Westside and May Street Schools learned a friendship dance, to drum beats by N'chi Wanapum Canoe Family from the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs visited the school, and taught dances from Columbia basin tribal traditions. Watch here as students, on their feet and in their seats, gradually warm to the dance, and to the rhythm, with voices - and arms - enthusiastically raised by the end of the three-minute dance.
