            For those who roll in early in Friday, there's also a theatre group called "Debajehmujig", I think they'll be putting on a show. Karen Pheasant is directing one but I'm not too sure if it runs until that weekend...more later!

                  KJP Director’s Notes
                  The Promise

                  Our cultural dance has/have seen striking changes during the past 100 years, since the Wild West shows. In the past our dances had been times of offerings to the Creator, dutiful responsibilities for the land, people and our sacred way of life. In our ceremonies, these dances represented a cultural process of completion. As time passed, our dances evolved to a celebration of our identity, as Aboriginal people, as Aniishnaabe. The songs and dances of each tribe, contributed to the current pow-wow dance spectacular. As each nation shares their contribution, each nation/family and individual honours the cultural process. The Aniishnaabe people, thru the power of dreams, brought the Jingle dress to the women. This dance was to bring healing to the people, through the songs, dances and honouring of the Aniishnaabe way of life, the philosophies of the people.
                  Each generation that adopts the cultural practice of dance, whether it is ceremonial or social, and each dancer brings their gifts of expression and creative artistry. This evening, gather to delight in the cultural creative dance expression of our next generation. The Promise is about an actual event that occurred in the late 80’s, when the Jingle dress was in transition from the original land territory of the Lake of the Woods areas, Northern Ontario. A young Kiowa women traditional dancer and her family took the journey to the Whitefish Bay pow-wow, to seek the true story of the Jingle dress, and the authentic protocol to practice this dance. This is a story about how the Grandma’s passed this dance to the next generation, and the acknowledgement of responsibilities of the next generation, the commitment to uphold the dream of this dance – The Promise.
