Creator Spotlight - Ria Thundercloud
This month we talked to Ria Thundercloud, author of Finding My Dance, about a few of her favorite things.
Favorite food: Chicken wild rice, something that is indigenous to the Midwest. Gathering wild rice is a technique that has been practiced pre contact with Europeans.
Favorite book as a kid: Island of the Blue Dolphins
Favorite dance: Contemporary when I am dancing classically and a tie between jingle and fancy when it comes to pow wow.
Favorite word: Love, because it can be used so interchangeably as a form of expression or a noun.
Favorite thing about being an author: Storytelling with my words vs dance movements
Favorite animal: I love hawks and wolves because they are protectors and hunters, an amazing balance of fierce and majestic.
