Git Hayetsk Dancers

 

Ancestralizing the Present

Ancestralizing the Present was a free event hosted at The Dance Centre on June 10, 2017, with performances by Spakwus Slulem (Eagle Song Dancers), Git Hayetsk (People of the Copper Shield) and Aeriosa. The event marks the extension of Mique’l Dangeli’s doctoral thesis “Dancing Sovereignty: Protocol and Politics in Northwest Coast First Nations Dance” and it involved “taking the time to get to know one another” – an approach that Dangeli believes to be closer to “reconciliation” than projects that simply tick the boxes of inclusivity, or demand that Indigenous artists perform settlers’ expectations of Indigenous culture.

Git Hayetsk: The Lives Behind the Dance

For members of Git Hayetsk, dance is so much more than rehearsal and performance. The film Git Hayetsk: The Lives Behind the Dance looks at the strong dance family ties that have been formed through shared passion and history.
