Gourd Dance Held as Precursor to Tulsa Indian Art Festival

Posted: Updated:

A gourd dance was held today as a pre-dance for next weekend's 28th annual Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival.

The gourd dance began with a warrior's dance and is a social dance involving both men and women, said Alice Whitecloud, board member for the Tulsa Indians Arts Festival.

The dance will feature four to eight songs and will run Saturday from 1-6 p.m. at Perryman Ranch Pavilion in Jenks.

Involved in the Tulsa Indian Arts Festival are western tribes, coinciding with the featured artist at the festival who is a member of the Arapaho tribe. Members of the Cheyenne tribe will also be present.

The festival begins next Friday, Jan. 31, and will conclude on Sunday.
