Hoop Dance of Taos

We saw the Hoop DANCE of TAOS twice-once at Taos as a solo by Juanito Lujan, the son of the governor; and once at the Gallup Ceremonial as a group dance. We saw two hoop dancers also at Standing Rock, North Dakota (see Fig. 28) , one with a flexible hoop covered with down or short feathers.

 

The costuming at Taos was very simple: bare body, except for colored neckerchief; breech clout of apron shape, front and back, split up both sides; string of bells just below each knee; and moccasins. He wore a beaded handband, and carried a hoop about two feet in diameter.

In the group presentation, they wore short black velvet pants, yellow shirts, and one a dancing bustle.

At Standing Rock, they wore all the clothes they could muster.

The time of the music was a fast I-2, I-2, accented on the I.

The steps which they used, we have combined and organized into the following routine:  Woodcraft Hoop Dance
