NEW YORK The National Museum of the American Indian in New York is pleased to present a performance by dancer and award-winning flute player Jacob Pratt, Dakota and Saulteaux, at the Circle of Dance benefit luncheon today.
Jacob Pratt - Dakota and Saulteaux
Pratt, who hails from Saskatchewan, Canada, has mastered some of the most dynamic and demanding forms of Native American dance, including the Hoop Dance - using 15 hoops - and Men's Traditional within the powwow genre. He joins the Museum from a recent residency at The Banff Centre of Canada, where he studied with ballet legend Jock Soto (our emcee for Circle of Dance).
In addition to his dance and music, Pratt is an active member of his Native community, working with First Nations/Native American youth.
