The talk will explain the history of the Jingle Dress Dance, an important dance tradition among American Indian women today, and why it is associated with both healing and anti-colonialism. The talk will also discuss the dance at Standing Rock during the fall of 2016. The jingle dress dance began a hundred years ago among the Ojibwe, whose tribal nations are along the Great Lake and US and Canadian border, and number 200,000 people today.
