Tyrone "Dancing Wolf" Ellis is a Wolf Clan member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation of New Jersey. He practices many cultural arts, such as rattle making, drum making, singing & drumming, regalia making, and beadwork. He was a recipient of the New Jersey Folk Arts Apprenticeship Grant, working under the tribe’s Chief to learn the creation of both Pow-Wow Drums and Water Drums and gained a residency from the Wheaton Arts to teach the younger generation of tribal youth. Tyrone has learned from numerous respected elders and knowledge holders amongst the tribe, including well known people such as Chief Mark “Quiet Hawk” Gould, Co- Chief Lewis “Grey Squirrel” Sonny Pierce, late grandmother Lorraine “Rainbow Walker” Gregg, Urie Ridgeway, and Will Mosley Sr. As his tribe’s Annual Pow-Wow and Program Coordinator he demonstrates the bulk of these arts to the public to promote healthy relationships while reducing stereotypes and ignorance of Native American Culture.
