Hoop Dancer Kachina

Hoop Dancer Kachina 12" (Virgil Tom)


Watching Native American hoop dancing is a very comforting, satisfying, and extraordinary experience. Immersing myself in absorbing various hoop dances fills me with delight. I must say, watching Tony Duncan and Kevin Locke perform hoop dance always leaves me in a trance. With my admiration and appreciation for hoop dancing, it was inevitable I would get a Hoop Dancer Kachina doll. 

The hoop represents the never-ending circle of life. The Hoop Dance is a storytelling dance, which incorporates from three up to as many as forty hoops. The hoop represents harmony, continuity, unity, well-being, wholeness, balance and peace.


“Today it brings to mind our round planet and all that we humans share on Earth.” “These many hoops represented groups or nations of people, living together in harmony.” (Lakota Hoop Dancer, 1999)
