Poem inspired by a conversation with the artist Al Manybears
In July 2000 New Dance Horizons in Regina Saskatchewan put together a presentation for “Dance and the Child International”. It consisted of dance, song and poetry performed by about thirty young people many from Canada’s First Nations. I had the privilege of coaching and guiding them as they wrote their own poems.
This is the story of the teachers and young people involved which is being reposted today in recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada
