The Unbroken Circle: Native American Song and Dance Workshop

THE UNBROKEN CIRCLE:  Native American Song and Dance Workshop
Sunday, November 20 at 1:30 p.m., Rettner Community Music Center (Messinger Hall): 

The “Unbroken Circle” represents the Circle of Life in which the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America) meet to dance, sing, tell stories and pass on their cultural heritage to those within the Circle.

You are invited to join the Circle, when Daystar Dance will demonstrate the Intertribal Dances of Turtle Island: the young woman’s coming-of-age Butterfly Dance, the man’s imitation of nature in the Grass Dance, the healing legacy of the Jingle Dress and the Circle of Life Hoop Dance. Dance and Song accompany each other. Those gathered for this event will have the opportunity to learn story-dance songs: Haida Welcome Song, Ojibwe Fish Dance, Cherokee Cactus Spine Song.

Daystar/Rosalie Jones acknowledges ancestry as Pembina (Little Shell) Chippewa-Cree, as passed through her mother’s lineage. She is a dancer, choreographer and teacher of both traditional native and contemporary western performing arts.

All ages are welcome. Join us for this celebration of the Unbroken Circle!
