The Oneida Youth Singers perform traditional song and dance Friday at Thornberry Creek at Oneida in Hobart.
The Oneida Youth Singers held a song and dance program Friday at Thornberry Creek at Oneida. In the Oneida Tribe of Indians community, a social dance features tribal singing and dancing. The social is an interactive experience between the singers, dancers and audience.
During the winter session of the Music from Our Culture, apprentices and children learned how Oneida tribal social dances are run. They learned the Oneida Thanksgiving Address that opens the session and social dance songs and dances.
The mission of the Music from Our Culture program is to unite Oneida's children through the power of music and the arts, and to preserve the tribe's unique voice and music.
