Madeline Island Jingle Dress Dancer Potluck Today 5 PM Rec Center

Come and join us for a sneak preview of the Madeline Island Jingle Dress Dancer. For the past two weeks, we have been hosting the construction of this dancer at the Rec Center. Overseen by artist Chris Lutter and guided by anishinabe kwes and jingle dress dancers Kather Morrisseau (Red Cliff) and Annie Humphrey (Leech Lake), construction of our dancer  has engaged over 65 people to help with her creation. Tonight at 5 PM we celebrate and share a meal with those who helped, and those who are interested in her meaning.

The Dancer will debut on Treaty Day, September 30 on Madeline Island. Stay tuned for details of that event.

Many hands are need to help make the jingles, bead the mocs, belt, and leggings, craft her face and hands and sew her dress. All are welcome!
