The ceremonial dances of indigenous people  are cultural affirmations and acts of resistance which articulate the peoples relationship to the land. This piece juxtaposes  a Pomo dancer, a Mexica danzante and a Hawai’ian hula dancer and was made to support the 2007 Indigenous People’s Night of Resistance at UC Berkeley.
