Nelly Furtado’s single “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)” w/San Carlos Apache dancers

The video for Nelly Furtado’s single “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)” has been released, and for fans of hoop dancing it’s a great tribute to the skills of champion hoop dancer Tony Duncan and his brother Kevin (both San Carlos Apache/Arikara/Hidatsa).

Also making a surprise (to us) appearance is Violet Duncan, Plains Cree/Taino, Tony’s wife, performing a fancy shawl dance. Violet served as Miss Indian World 2007.
