Native American Hoop Dancer and Storyteller

Dallas Chief EagleDallas Chief Eagle Jr. is a K-12 art teacher with a Master’s degree in guidance counseling and personal services. A recognized master of the Lakota hoop dance, Chief Eagle has worked as an artist in-residence and mentor through his Hoop dance studio in the All Nations Gathering Center on the Pine Ridge Reservation. A member of the Rosebud Lakota Nation, Chief Eagle shares and teaches the traditional hoop dance in a manner that the students enjoy while learning about the development of their own characters.
Chief Eagle will also introduce Grandpa Rock to the students while they sit around a buffalo robe. Each day core students will experience Grandpa Rock exercises that improve self-awareness and management skills. These Grandpa Rock exercises have proven to replace the burdens of pain, confusion and suffering with peace, compassion and joy. The finale of the residency is a school assembly or public performance during which core groups demonstrate the skills they acquired throughout the week.
