Missouri: One Nation, a float honoring Native American culture, will be in the 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade. The massive float was entered by RFD-TV. One Nation pays tribute to the sights and sounds of Native America and features Brule, the award-winning Native American musical group.

Paul LaRoche, founder of Brule’, says the float puts a long overdue spotlight on American Indian culture.  Both RFD and Brule hope One Nation will help connect global cultures in friendship and in unity.

One Nation stretches 75-feet in length and focuses on a 35-foot fancy dancer.  Brule’ will play inspirational music during the 5.5 mile parade route.  Fancy and traditional dancers wearing authentic regalia will also perform Native dances.  

An invitation has been send to more than 500 tribes across America inviting a tribal member to help decorate the One Nation float before the parade.
