Dances that mimic birds: The Crow Hop

Crow Hop Dance

"The Crow Hop originated from Western Tribes. It, too, is a social dance meant 

to mimic the crow as he bounces around the field. One legend states that the 

crow brought fire to our land to keep our ancestors alive through the cold 

winter. Dancers imitate bird-like movements, hopping side-to-side, first on one 

foot and then on the other."
