Hoop dance inspires confidence in Native American youth – BBC News

LaRance, an artist in northern New Mexico, started the Pueblo of Pojoaque Youth Hoop Dancers in 2013, at a time when he felt the younger generation was becoming too distracted by modern influences and technologies.

Produced by the BBC’s Franz Strasser.
