MidWinter Dreaming

Santee Smith, MidWinter Dreaming
Grade 5-12 Indigenous arts Dance Storytelling Talks

For many Nations, Winter is a time when families and community come together to tell stories, give thanks, sing, dance, play games and feast. Although we cannot gather due to COVID-19, we can bring our minds and hearts together and acknowledge this time of Winter renewal and to share stories and our dreams.

Kaha:wi Dance Theatre’s MidWinter Dreaming offers students and teachers an engaging presentation of short pre-recorded videos marking the Haudenosaunee Sa’teyohserí:hen / MidWinters and highlight the creativity and Winter stories from kin Nations artists.

This video presentation will be accompanied by a 20-minute live Q+A with a professional artist or a member of the production team involved in creating these works.

A teacher’s guide to MidWinter Dreaming will be provided to teachers prior to the workshop.
