Wacipi Dance Styles

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community’s (SMSC) annual Wacipi hosts dancers from across the country to gather, compete, and celebrate life and culture. Dancers who attend the SMSC Wacipi participate in several dance categories where they compete for top honors. These dances are important to the history of Native American people, and they will continue to be practiced for generations to be come.
