Lead Artist

Terrance Littletent is from the Kawacatoose Cree Nation and was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. Terrance is an accomplished Grass and Hoop Dancer who has traveled across North America and overseas, sharing his gift of song, dance and narrative in a humble way. At six years old, Terrance had already been introduced to the traditional techniques and movement skills used to create his own dance choreography. By the age of eight, Terrance’s uncle, Kirby Littletent, presented him with the gift of the hoop, which inspired Terrance to continue his uncle’s legacy of sharing the ways of their people. Eleven years later, Terrance became recognized as a world-renowned hoop dancer. As an educator, producer and performer, Terrance continues to find ways to bridge traditional and contemporary dance and music styles.
