While visiting the Indian Village, don’t miss a performance at the Dance Circle. You’ll gain a greater appreciation for Native American traditions as you watch six authentic tribal dances:

  • The Omaha (called the War Dance by white settlers)
  • The Shield and Spear
  • The Eagle
  • The Zuni-Comanche
  • The Mountain Spirit
  • The Friendship dances

If you’re a child, you’ll be invited to join the dancers for the Friendship dances.

At Disneyland, the Cermonial Dance Circle was part of the park’s Indian Village. When the Indian Village closed in 1971, so did the Dance Circle.
