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.
I'm still having flashbacks of the last encounter I had with Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk. It was a biting cold January 9, 2009 at Slowdown, and the recently immortalized Pennsylvanian DJ was in town to host one of his famed electric dance parties. I wasn't sure if the hype surrounding him was "all that," but I quickly learned that Gillis does indeed throw one hell of a party.
