Title: The Raas Way
Author(s): Ringo Starr
Subject(s): Rhet105 The Raas Team Indian Dance
Abstract: Who: For my research in the project, I will be studying the University of Illinois' Raas Team What: the Raas Team is one of the University's Indian Cultural Dance Group Where: In order to best understand this subculture, I will be meeting them where they have their practices at various places in Champaign including Gregory Hall and Lincoln Hall. When: Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 9:30p.m.- 12:30a.m. Why: This subculture that I have chosen does what they do in order to spread a piece of their Indian culture in the United States in the form of dance. I have chosen to research them because I would like to learn more about a culture that is far from any part of the world that I have ever been near.
