Chaske (5 year old Fancy Dancer) performs with the Silvercloud Singers.
The drum group was founded by Kevin Tarrant (Hopi/ Ho Chunk) and is an intertribal Native Drum group whose singers reside in the New York area. Fancy Dancing is a contest dance, one of the exciting and beautiful dances done at powwows. The term "fancy dance" is derived from the intricate regalia and complicated dance moves. It is not unusual for children to start dancing at a young age.
