NM Man’s Native American Dance After Biden’s Win Goes Viral
Over the weekend, we saw plenty of Americans heading to the streets to celebrate former Vice-President Joe Biden's win over President Donald Trump. On Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden was named the projected winner of the 2020 Presidential election and his voters headed out to celebrate. We saw in large cities across the US people gather in the street to dance, sing, hug, and basically do everything the CDC told us to not be doing anymore. But still, it happened.
One video that caught the attention of people on social media was from Albuquerque, New Mexico of a street celebration where cars were parading by honking their horns in honor of Joe Biden. One Albuquerque man felt so moved by the celebration that he hopped out of his car and began doing a traditional Native American dance. Ashkia Trujillo told KRQE News he was parked in traffic and was moved by the jubilation of the moment and got out of his car and began to dance
“It just really meant a lot to each and every one of us. So hopefully with all that, positive changes can come for each and every one of us. Not just Native Americans, not just African Americans but all of us but all of us, one people.”
The video has now gone viral, with over 36,000 retweets and 245,000 likes. You can read more about the video and the response on the KRQE website.
