Dance has been the defining element of Derrick Suwaima Davis’ life. A master at maneuvering five rattan hoops around his body, he is the only adult Seven Time Hoop Dance World Champion. He conveys the Hopi story of creation through his hoops – creating intricate patterns while keeping time to the singing and drumming of Ryon Polyquaptewa. Join us as Derrick (Hopi/Choctaw) and Ryon (Hopi) return to celebrate Native American Heritage Month, share their culture, and demonstrate why Derrick is a world championship hoop dancer in this program for all ages.
