The Sacred Sundance: The Transfer of a Ceremony

This feature-length documentary chronicles the sharing of a ceremony from an Elsipogtog elder from Western Canada to the Mi'kmaq people of Eastern Canada. 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.
