Jingle Dress Healing Dance - Portage & Main, Saturday Oct 12, 2013, 10am

Welcoming the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Jingle Dress Healing Dance – Portage & Main, Saturday Oct 12, 2013, 10am

Calling all jingle dress dancers!

Calling the healing drums!

Calling all men who value and want to protect our women and girls!

On Saturday, October 12th, beginning at 10am, James Anaya, Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, will be meeting with designates from Manitoba’s Indigenous community. Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) Grand Chief Derek Nepinak, along with leaders from the host Treaty One territory and treaty territories from throughout this part of Turtle Island are hoping to welcome Mr. Anaya in a unique and powerful way.

Recent global attention to the ongoing tragedies unfolding in the streets of our towns and cities and the ongoing indifference of the Harper government creates an onus on all of us to stand up, be heard, and demonstrate our rich history and culture to the global community. Mr. Anaya’s visit presents an avenue for us to come together and demonstrate the great depth of spirit and love, which in turn is the most powerful energy that exists here in our ancestral lands.

Calling all jingle dress dancers! Please adorn your regalia and be prepared to dance in unison with the drum to healing, honor and victory songs at the corner of Portage & Main on the morning of Saturday, October 12th, at 10am. The healing powers of Indigenous women are needed at this time and the circle is yours to bring the energy and power needed to be heard around the world.

Calling the drums! We will need drums and singers to sing healing songs, honor songs and victory songs for approximately 30 minutes. Singing our songs in unison demonstrates the consistency and unity in our culture and the strength and integrity of our teachings in our ancient songs.

Calling all the men who value and want to protect our women and girls! Men please be on hand to form a human arbor of strength around our women and girls and the drums. Your presence symbolizes your commitment to protect our women and to help create the safe forum for our women to demonstrate their power. We will need as many boys and men as possible.
