Written by Ria Thundercloud, Ho-Chunk Nation and Sandia Pueblo, and illustrated by Kalila J. Fuller.

In her debut picture book, professional dancer Ria Thundercloud tells the story of her path to dance and how it helped her take pride in her Native American heritage.

At four years old, Ria Thundercloud was brought into the Powwow Circle, ready to dance in the Jingle Dress her mother made for her. As she grew up, she danced with her brothers all over Indian country. Then Ria learned more styles—tap, jazz, ballet—but still loved the expressiveness of Indigenous dance. And despite feeling different as one of the only Native American kids in her school, she always knew she could turn to dance to cheer herself up.

Follow along as Ria shares her dance journey—from dreaming of her future to performing as a professional—accompanied by striking illustrations bringing her graceful movements to life.
