Title: "Red Blanket Native Pride Dancers in Celebration of Native American Heritage Month"

The United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, welcomes you and your family to feel the beat of the drums, enjoy the dancing, and take part in our annual celebration of Native American Heritage Month with the Red Blanket Native Pride Dancers on Friday, November 22, 2019 at 7:00PM. The dancers will perform a wide array of ceremonial and social dancing techniques passed down through their culture for generations.  The demonstration will include authentic dress, freestyle movements, and intense music, accompanied by vocals and flutes from the Northern Plains to complete the performance. Throughout Native American history, dancing has always represented a major tenant of the culture, and such an opportunity to view traditional dance forms allows for a more complete understanding of Native American customs and heritage. 

The Red Blanket Native Pride Dancers' mission is to "educate, inspire, motivate, and empower diverse communities to bridge cultural gaps through indigenous traditions." Like many other native groups, they are "passionately devoted to keeping traditions alive" through music and dance.
