A circle, or hoop, has infinite sides and infinite angles.

"Google it," Lumhe Sampson encouraged the crowd at a music festival in St. Paul's Mears Park. From the stage, Sampson held up a white plastic ring, about 2 feet across, and explained how, in indigenous culture, the hoop represents the circle of life, encompassing all the people on Earth.
