The Talako Indian Dancers

Group

About the Talakos

The Talako (talako is the Choctaw word for eagle) Indian Dancers Family Club was formed in 1986. It is devoted to sharing American Indian culture with the community through dance. The group has now completed over 2000 performances.

Membership is open to all boys and girls under the age of 18. Most Talako families have American Indian heritage, but this is not required. All new Talakos are taught dancing and are assisted in forming their dance regalia. Expense money is furnished by the club. All parents serve on the Board of Directors.

Parental participation is strongly encouraged. The youth members have a lot of enjoyable experience and the opportunity to enhance their self-confidence, self-esteem, and physical fitness. Major events in addition to the shows include a formal Naming Ceremony and the Annual Awards Dinner.
