Dallas Chief Eagle, a Lakota hoop dancer in the Coolidge. November 15, 2007.
Dallas Chief Eagle, Rosebud Sioux tribal member – World Hoop Dance Champion
Dallas Chief Eagle is a member of the Rosebud Lakota (Sioux) Nation and master of the hoop dance. For Dallas, the hoop dance is more than a dance; it is a way of keeping Lakota traditions alive. The ancient and honorable tradition of the hoop dance explains the Plains Indian worldview as the hoops intersect and grow into ever more complex shapes, always and forever returning to the beginning. His 27 hoops represent the different colors and sizes of trees, which, to Dallas, also represent the diversity of life. His ornate dance regalia itself resembles a tree, with animals on its branches – a porcupine roach and eagle feather on his head, fur on his legs and dragonfly beadwork on his “trunk.” As with the Lakota word “can’ gleska,” which means both “spotted hoop” and “tree,” the two come together closely for Dallas, who demonstrates the power of this symbolism in his intricate hoop dance.
