Traditional tribal dancers from the Quapaw Nation will return to their homeland to perform at Art Springs. Quapaw Tribal Dancers will perform at 1 PM on Sunday, May 1 at Art Springs. A series of various traditional dances will be performed with explanations from the dancers about each dance.
Tribal member Mike Shawnee said, “Every time we come to Arkansas, I feel our ancestors all around us. I think they would be happy that the Quapaws are making an effort to be a presence in our original home.”
Before their forced removal around 1834 from Arkansas to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma, the Quapaws made their homes in areas as far east as the Mississippi River and west to Oklahoma and Texas. Recently, the tribal nation purchased 160 acres near Little Rock in an effort to regain a small portion of their lost homeland.
The performance is sponsored by VIPA Hospitality Group.
