Dancers

Like many groups, the Mi'kmaq had their own special way of dancing that identified them. Some dances imitate animal movements. Other dances uphold Mi'kmaq beliefs, worldviews, social structure and values.  

These dancers have become a source of material for me. Capturing the colour and movement of the dance is imperative to my work
