WAĆIPI KTE! - Let's Dance!
Song and dance are an important aspect of all Indigenous cultures. This dance theatre production provides an insight into the traditional Dakota/Nakota/Lakota views on the importance of song and dance.
It provides an overview of waćipi history and the evolution of modern day powwow. Powwow has helped many Indigenous people to feel proud of who they are and has motivated them to learn more about their language, culture and history. It has also motivated non-Indigenous peoples to want to learn as well.*
*From program in the WAĆIPI KTE! original production.
Learning outcomes: history, reconciliation.
Suitable for all ages.
