Ancient stories, contemporary voices

Members of the Lakota Sioux Dance Theatre perform in Wellin Hall as part of the College’s Performing Arts Contemporary Voices and Visions Series. The three-part Cokata Upo! performance explores Lakota culture through narratives, creation stories, and traditional and sacred songs and dances. Founded in 1978 on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, the Lakota Sioux Dance Theatre began with the support of traditional Lakota Indian educators, healers, community leaders, powwow dancers, singers and storytellers. The company includes some of the most highly acclaimed performers of the Sioux Nation and is directed by award-winning choreographer Henry Smith, an adopted member of the Lakota Sioux.
