Ceremonial Hoop Dance Tells Story

Twenty-four year old Jerry Saddleback Jr. concentrates to keep all his hoops in the proper place at the right time—including those around his legs as he performs for students at Provost Public School on Thursday morning, May 7. Saddleback said that the storytelling hoop dance has been in his family for over 100 years and that he began the tradition handed down to him when he was four years old—and he in turn is teaching his five year old daughter the moves. The Samson Cree Nation member says that originally when his grandfather Joe Saddleback worked on a particular hoop dance that the hoops were made out of red willows. This and other dances were accompanied by the sounds of drums. People can see similar displays at a variety of drumming and dancing competitions across the Prairies this spring and summer. ©Provost News Photo.
