FEBRUARY 7-8, 2009
19th Annual World Championship Hoop Dance Contest
The Heard Museum. Central Ave. & Encanto Blvd. Phoenix, Arizona

All are welcome!

Gates Hours: 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Grand Entries: 9:30 a.m. both days.
Competition will end at approximately 5 p.m. on Saturday. The Adult final round will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

First-time adult champion Charles Denny, Chippewa/Cree/Ute, 18, from Fort Duchesne, Utah, is expected to defend his title against such seasoned competitors and crowd favorites as Derrick Davis, Hopi/Choctaw; Nakotah La Rance, Hopi/Tewa, from Flagstaff, Arizona; Alex Wells, Lil Wat First Nation, of Morley, Alberta; and Lisa Odjig, Odawa/Ojibwe, from Wikemiking, Ontario. Denny will also most likely be facing off against 2008’s second-place finisher Brian Hammill, Ho Chunk, of New River, Arizona, over whom Denny captured the 2008 title by just one point. The winners will take home their share of more than $30,000 in prize money. (Final competitor list will be available on Saturday, February 7 at the event.)

Competitors perform in five divisions including Tiny Tot (under 5 years), Youth (5 to 12), Teen (13 to 17), Adult (18 and older) and Senior (40 years and older). Visitors can enjoy dance performances as well as delicious fry bread and other American Indian foods. Held on the museum grounds, admission to the museum is included.

For many years, the intertribal hoop dance has expanded to incorporate new and creative designs and extremely intricate footwork. Each dancer presents a unique variation of the intertribal hoop dance, weaving in aspects of his or her distinct tradition and culture. Individual routines are presented using as few as four to as many as 50 hoops, which are manipulated to create a variety of designs including animals, butterflies and globes. Dancers are judged based on five skills – precision, timing/rhythm, showmanship, creativeness and speed. In recent years, younger competitors are incorporating modern dance steps like hip-hop into their routines. No matter which steps a hoop dancer wields, however, she or he is dancing in the footsteps of Tony Whitecloud, founder of the modern hoop dance.

Admission: Per Day (includes event and museum admission): $10 general admission, $9 seniors (65+), $7 American Indians, $3 for children age 4-12, FREE for children under 4.

6th Annual Ardoch Algonquin First Nation Manomiin Festival
Plevna Community Hall. 2518 Buckshot Lake Rd Plevna Ontario Canada

Times: Gate Hours: Open 11:00 am. Grand entry is at 12pm each day. Festival closes 6:00 pm Sunday.

Traditional Powwow. Everyone is Welcome. Drummers and dancers from all Nations welcome.

The annual Manomiin Festival celebrates the cultural heritage derived from Manomiin (wild rice) and its place in the history and identity of Algonquin people who reside in the Tay, Rideau, and Mississippi watersheds. The festival is located in the vicinity of four Manomiin beds that have continuously provided nourishment and contributed to cultural continuity since the mid nineteenth century. These Manomiin beds were established with seeds that were brought from Rice Lake by Mary Whiteduck who provided the seeds because Algonquin people in the area were starving. In that period, logging activities created thick smoke in the region and made it nearly impossible for communities who resided in the area to provide sustenance to their families. The seeds took and Algonquin people and many other regional residents have continued to depend on Manomiin for sustenance and cultural continuity. The Manomiin Festival Celebrates this continuity and the relationships that have developed between Algonquin people and regional residents.

The festival consists of traditional Anishinaabe music, dancing, singing, as well as teachings and storytelling on Algonquin history and culture. The history and celebration of Manomiin and its place in the lives of people in the region is a large component of the festival.

Master of Ceremonies: Mitch Shewell. Host Drum: Kawartha Lakes. Head Adult Dancers: Jordon Bilow and Jillian Cota. Head Youth Dancers: Okaga Newell and Corey Holtz.
