Dancers of Damelahamid 2 by Chris Randle

Dancers of Damelahamid舞蹈团执行长兼艺术总监Margaret Grenier以复兴原住民文化实现父母梦想

曾经是吉新族(Gitxsan)酋长的Ken Harris与克里族(Cree)妻子Margaret将他们的舞蹈团命名为Dancers of Damelahamid背后大有原因。在1960年代的时候,俩人希望团体的名字能够反映吉新族的文化传统。在1951年之前,加拿大政府一直推行《印第安人法》(Indian Act),禁止原住民举办散财宴(potlach),因此他们下定决心,誓要复兴西北海岸的原住民文化。

The Society of We Are Canadians Too created Pancouver to foster greater appreciation for underrepresented artistic communities. A rising tide of understanding lifts all of us.

We would like to acknowledge that we are gathered on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation). With this acknowledgement, we thank the Indigenous peoples who still live on and care for this land.
