What is likely a dream come true for any performer, three First Nations performers were invited to the Cultural Olympiad Art Performance Festival during the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea. Going by the name of Reconciliation is the Cree a capella duo Wendy Walker and Dawn von Armin. Joining them onstage will be Alexander First Nation hoop dancer Dallas Arcand Jr.
“Alberta will be very proud they sent us. I'm feeling really blessed right now.” Walker told CBC News.
Arcand said the hoop dance he's performing is a healing dance, and he's hoping to bring that message to attendees.
“It's time to move forward, time to overcome grudges,” Arcand said.
Should be an exciting show to watch. Here's a look at Dallas performing at the 26th Annual Emerald Awards last year.
