There is a beauty in color and movement that just cannot be duplicated. That is one way the Oklahoma Fancy Dancers are unique.
The Metropolitan Library System is proud to present the Fancy Dancers at six MLS locations during the month of April.
Oklahoma Fancy Dancers are powwow champions that joined together to create a professional Native American dance troupe. Each member of the Dancers is an enrolled tribal member. Most of them are full-blooded and they represent various tribes.
“Their dancing is authentic and fascinating,” said MLS Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow, “but the beauty of their events doesn’t end there. The regalia each dancer wears is gorgeous and traditional. It authentically represents the dancer’s tribe.”
The Oklahoma Fancy Dancers can be enjoyed at these MLS locations:
