Nakotah LaRance

Nakotah LaRance Nakotah LaRance is a six-time World Hoop Dance Champion whose star has really risen performing not only with Cirque Du Soleil’s “Totem” show and elsewhere, but he truly captured the hearts of a whole lot of hoopers last year with his mad Native American hoop dance skills in the Geronimo music video with The Knocks and Fred Falke. Here we have the total treat of getting to see his competition performance at the Heard Museum’s World Championship Hoop Dance Contest in Phoenix, Arizona, and while we know he placed sixth this year following a relatively unprecedented hoop dance off, regardless of whatever happened with the judging there’s something truly awe inspiring going on here.

  1. Wow, this is totally amazing. Thanks so much for posting it here…I can’t even comprehend how he pulls some of those moves off. Definitely going to be watching this one repeatedly 🙂

  2. I would love to learn how to do this. I’m Comanche and I have never lived by my tribes reservation. How can I learn to do this when I don’t live close to my heritage and native heritage isn’t a widely celabraited or recognized in this country?
