When I worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, I learned there was great power in the round dance. The step is relatively easy, so this is a dance in which I participated. But the power of the dance is in a large group forming hands and dancing. One time I danced with the school children; and on another occasion the entire community participated in the dance. The music and the step seem to increase feelings of camaraderie. The times when I participated, everyone held hands and the circle was complete. This video gives some idea of the music and the step.
