How can I become involved in Native American Dance?

Hey everyone, I知 a new member interested in learning native dance. I知 a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, but live in NC, so I do not have access to workshops, classes, camps etc sponsored by my tribe. How can I go about trying to connect with a local group or organization through which I can learn and participate in native dance? - Thanks

Yep, start by attending powwows. Some might have a social dance or round dance where spectators can join in. Maybe make a friend that dances the style that you like, or just dances.

I got started powwow dancing while living away from home...in fact that's the only time I've ever danced.

Thanks, yes, that's the plan, I was way over complicating this. It's funny how distance from tribe can sometimes be proportional to how much you miss and appreciate your heritage! Thanks again
