NAKOTAH LARANCE YOUTH HOOP DANCE CHAMPIONSHIP 2022
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Hosted by: Lightning Boy Foundation Inc. in collaboration with the Museum Of Indian Arts and Culture

The Nakotah LaRance Youth Hoop Dance Championship celebrates the passion Nakotah had for empowering our Native youth through dance and culture.

Nakotah is credited for bringing the Native American Hoop Dance back to New Mexico. His work  inspired a young boy, Valentino Tzigiwhaeno Rivera (2008-2016), to become a hoop dancer, whose wish  was that all young Native youth could learn this dance.

Nakotah helped inspire and found The Lightning Boy Foundation, whose mission is to nurture and empower our Native youth through cultural programming.
Nakotah LaRance (Hopi-Tewa) (1989-2020) was a nine time World Hoop Dance Champion, award-winning actor, and humanitarian.
