About this program

Rhonda Doxtator, a pow wow dancer from the turtle clan of Oneida nation, shares her love of her Indigenous culture in an engaging and heartfelt talk for the first nine minutes of this video presentation. She speaks about the meaning behind her Haudenosaunee name, Kawisaha, which means ‘She is Carrying Ice’, and describes the powerful role of hoop dancing. In the final four minutes, viewers are treated to a hoop dancing performance that brings together all the elements of Rhonda’s talk and offers a glimpse of what one might experience at a pow wow here on Turtle Island.
