Connecting to tradition through dance

Connecting to tradition through dance

Yahoo News VideoNovember 23, 2016

Tomas is a Native American performing artist who lives and works in Page, AZ. He comes from both Navajo and Dutch parentage. As a child growing up on a reservation in Shonto, AZ, he was bullied for looking “too white.” He dealt with adversity by connecting more deeply to his Navajo roots. He now teaches Native American dances to kids in his tribe, helping them to connect to a tradition that is to some degree being forgotten by the current generation.
