Larry Yazzie performs the eagle dance in downtown Aspen on Monday. Yazzie explained that the eagle dance is a prayer dance to bring unity and humanity to people. “As we go through these uncertain times, I wanted to bring a little bit of good medicine to the people of Aspen,” Yazzie said.

Larry Yazzie, founder of the Native Pride Dancers, teaches some dance moves to members of the audience Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018 in the Homer High School Mariner Theatre in Homer, Alaska.
