Eagle Spirit Singers and Dancers

The Eagle Spirit Singers and Dancers perform every Wednesday night through August 12, 7 p.m., at the Museum of the American West in Lander.   Bring a lawn chair or blanket, or sit on the benches.   There is plenty of room for physical distancing at this outdoor venue.

Each performance begins with a grand entry where the dancers enter the circle.   After the grand entry various styles of dance are performed – traditional, fancy feather, grass, jingle dress, fancy shawl and hoop dancing.  You’ll learn about the dance styles, meet the dancers and the drum group. 

George Abeyta, a fancy feather dancer himself, is the MC for the Eagle Spirit Dancers at the Museum of the American West in Lander.

“We are very pleased, privileged and honored to work with the Museum of the American West. It’s always a blessing to celebrate life through song and dance. During our 45-minute presentation we share the powwow way of life and the Native American culture to breakdown cultural barriers and to dispel myths, half-truths, and misunderstandings”.

Performances are free.  Children and cameras are welcome.
