American Folklore Society Annual Meetings often conclude with a participatory and celebratory dance event. This year, the closing dance will be a participatory stomp dance hosted by the Duck Creek Ceremonial Ground, a Yuchi (Euchee) Ceremonial Ground of the Muscogee Nation whose membership includes people of Yuchi, Muscogee, Shawnee and other Native American heritages. The dance will be open to all annual meeting attendees as well as to other Native and non-Native participants. Stomp dance is the shared social dance form found among almost all of the Native American Nations of eastern Oklahoma, including among the Cherokee, Muscogee, Shawnee, and Yuchi living in and near the city of Tulsa.

The Stomp Dance will take place Saturday, October 15, 8:30 pm–11:00 pm at Cain’s Ballroom, 423 North Main Street, Tulsa, OK 74103 and is sponsored by the AFS Local Planning Committee, the American Folklore Society, Cain’s Ballroom, the Duck Creek Ceremonial Ground, and Oklahoma Humanities.
