Summer Series - Rhonda Doxtador – Hoop Dance

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series!

Rhonda Doxtator is from the Oneida nation of Southern Ontario. Her name is Kawisaha which means "She is carrying ice" and is from the Turtle Clan. Rhonda has been a pow wow dancer for 30 years and her passion lies within the cultural arts of dancing and singing and regalia making.

The hoop dance originates from the nations of the southwestern United States. Traditionally used as a medicine, with hoops made from willow branches and primarily danced by the men, this dance has since evolved and changed to what it is today. The intent and purpose remains the same: a medicine to lift the spirits of the people by honouring creation, through this storytelling dance

These free concerts will take place every Thursday in July and August. The performances will present a wonderfully diverse selection of local artists and performers.
