The Sacred Sundance: The Transfer of a Ceremony

The Sacred Sundance: The Transfer of a Ceremony

| 1 h 9 min

This feature-length documentary chronicles the Sundance ceremony brought to Eastern Canada by William Nevin of the Elsipogtog First Nation of the Mi'kmaq. Nevin learned from Elder Keith Chiefmoon of the Blackfoot Confederacy in Alberta. Under the July sky, participants in the Sundance ceremony go four days without food or water. Then they will pierce the flesh of their chests in an offering to the Creator. This event marks a transmission of culture and a link to the warrior traditions of the past.

    The Elsipogtog elder is from Eastern Canada, not from Western Canada. The elder from Western Canada is Keith Chiefmoon of the Blackfoot Confederacy in Alberta.

    The sacred sundance film is a educational film to share about the Indigenous way of life, and how we co-exist in a ever changing world.
