Sampson Brothers

Hoop Dance Fusion – Speaker + Performer

As world-renowned dancers, Lumhe and Samsoche Sampson (Mvskoke Creek/Seneca) – a.k.a. the “Sampson Brothers”-promote cultural pride, unity, and hope through art, education, and dance. From the moment they began walking, the brothers learned the Powwow styles of Grass and Fancy dance, and Hoop dance became their passion as young boys. More than 25 years later, they have performed in more than half a dozen countries, hundreds of universities, and educated thousands of people around the world about their culture and Indigenous Hoop Dancing. The Sampson Brothers bridge modern times while honoring tradition, bridging two worlds to break stereotypes, provide positive inspiration, and create opportunities for the Indigenous community for generations to come.
