    She posted the joyful sight to Twitter on Saturday where it has already racked up more than 5 millions views.  

    Chischilly, who is herself of Navajo descent, was in the city filming protests in Albuquerque and suddenly heard some familiar music that she knew from when she was younger. 

    She said the music reminded her of Navajo traditions that she was taught growing up.

    After locating its source she came across the man performing a traditional storytelling dance right in the middle of the street
