Women and Men Are Good Dancers

"Women and Men Are Good Dancers," is a translation from the Cree language of an intertribal pow wow song. Bowman was inspired to create this tape by the "nizhoni" (Dine) or "it is beautiful" of the Plains song and dance, in particular the Grass Dance. Working with dancers from different traditions she uses a combination of video document that both acknowledges and exceeds the boundaries of ethnography and conventional performance documentation.
