Ria Thundercloud is a professional dancer. She started dancing in a powwow circle. That is a Native American tradition. It honors Native culture through dance and music. Thundercloud fell in love with dancing. “I could express myself,” she told TIME for Kids. “It feels very liberating.” Thundercloud writes about her experience in Finding My Dance. She shares her pride in her Native culture. “[My] culture means everything to me,” she says. “I do not know if I would be able to be the person I am without the culture I have.”
