Acoma Rain Dancers

Acoma Rain Dancers

Acoma Learning Center utilizes traditional education to promote individual skills, knowledge and cultural growth through traditional dancing.

The Acoma Learning Center established the Acoma Rain Dancers Dance Group in January 2013 after a request was made by some youth patrons for an after school activity. With this request the staff decided to organize a youth group aimed at increasing involvement in traditional activities and spirituality. The Acoma Learning Center utilizes traditional education to promote individual skills, knowledge and cultural growth. The youth were brought together through their own desire to learn the culture and participate in festivities in honor of Tribal Administration. Through this group, the children have learned to pray and now understand the meaning in prayer in dance. They also find it a great joy to bring smiles to the audience and are always surprised to be praised by random people.

It was good to meet the Cheyenne & Arapaho Governor & his staff and perform for thier conference. We send our blessings and prayers back to thier respective communities. Dawaa'e for inviting us! ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ™โค

Performed for the "Braiding the Sacred" staff as they visited our pueblo. Even though it was cold, raining and snowing the children toughed it out. ๐ŸŒˆโ„๐ŸŒจ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ’ช

We shared some great information about corn and thier process of taking care of it. The exchanging of ideas through out the week was awesome and new friendships were created. We look forward to thier next visit! #memories #acomapueblo

Between the clouds and the desert floor lies Acoma Pueblo, the city in the sky. One of the oldest continuously inhabited villages in the U.S., it's a place where the modern meets the traditional and where the old ways are respected and passed down from one generation to the next. #NewMexicoTrue
