Sunset Over Water

The song that is playing in the background is one of the Seminole's Social Dance Songs.  This particular one is known as the Rabbit Dance Song.  For about 25 minutes, men and women circle around whoever possesses the rattle while holding hands and alternating.  These dancers do not sing and only one song is attributed to the dance.
