Dance exhibition brings culture to UNO

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, UNO hosted "Culture: Indian Style, Dance Exhibition" on Nov. 17.

The event began half an hour late at 12:30 p.m. and lasted until about 1 p.m.

Following Native American tradition, the event began with a prayer before kicking off the dance exhibition.

The first dance was a fancy shawl dance performed by Meredith Schramm. Before performing, she explained the dance as a more modern Native American dance that depicts the movement of the butterfly, as well as coming into womanhood.
