WHO ARE THE RAVEN DANCERS?
The Raven Dancers is a multi-ethnic group that teaches Native American-style dance, music, outfitting, and culture. We coordinate our efforts with elder members of the local Native American community. Our goals are threefold.
» We provide a safe and fun program for people of all ages and backgrounds to nurture within our members a spirit of self-worth and self-expression, and a deeper understanding of the Native American culture. Our emphasis is to help youth.
» We seek to help nurture and promote cultural understanding and diversity; to bring people together to share and respect the rich and wonderful heritage of Native American culture. Many of our members are of Native American descent.
» We provide educational entertainment to community groups throughout the Colorado Front Range. We perform for as many as fifty groups each year. We try to provide accurate and appropriate information, help overcome stereotypical images, and bring a deeper and clearer understanding of Native Americans to all peoples.
