Brulé in Rose Parade

Brulé to be featured in Rose ParadeA float dedicated to reconciliation and honoring Native American culture and featuring the musical group Brulé will be the RFD-TV entry in the 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade.

The 122nd Rose Parade themed Building Dreams, Friendships & Memories, will be Jan. 1, 2011, and feature spirited marching bands from throughout the nation, majestic floral floats, and high-stepping equestrian units.

RFD-TV is a U.S. satellite and cable television channel devoted to rural issues, concerns, and interests. The float, “One Nation,” will make its third appearance in the parade, stretching 75 feet in length and focused around a 35-foot Native American “fancy dancer.”

Brulé, founded by Worthington’s Paul LaRoche, will play live music as they ride down the 5.5 mile parade route in Pasadena, Calif. Fancy and traditional dancers will perform Native American dances around the float. According to a news release, more than 500 tribes across America have been invited to send a representative to participate with “One Nation” and help decorate the float in the days leading up to the parade.
