This Navajo and Tewa man, Ashkia ‘Kia’ Randy Trujillo, spontaneously performed a traditional dance in celebration after learning of Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
The footage, captured by photojournalism student Sharon Chrischilly, went viral garnering over 5 million views on social media.
Trujillo told NBC News that the dance “tells of how a battle was won and how the evil was pushed away.”
His joy is infectious.
By the way, Trujillo cleared up some confusion some had about his red hat. It wasn’t a MAGA hat but a Chicago Bulls hat.
