On September 11, 2017, our Title VI dancers had the opporuintiy to perform at the groundbreaking for the Butterfly Biosphere at Thanksgiving Point. Despite their young ages, these dancers did a wonderful performance. These young dancers danced the fancy shawl dance. This dance orginated among the northern tribes. Fancy shawl dancers are intented to resemble butterfiles. They are called "fancy shawl" dancers because the shawl tend to be colorful, bright, frigned, and the length of the shawl is similar to a butterflies wingspan. These gracious young women did a excellent job performing at this event.
