Now is the time…
Now is the time to unite the beauty of the land and healing power of the jingle dance during these uncertain times of COVID-19.The origin of the jingle dance came to the Ojibwe people during the influenza pandemic of 1918-19. It came as a dream to a father whose daughter was sick with the flu. His dream revealed the dress and dance which had the power to heal. The dresses were given to four women to perform the dance. When the little girl heard the sound of the jingles, she became stronger. By the end of the night she was dancing, too.The goal of Art Heals: The Jingle Dress Project is to travel and capture a series of images, perform the jingle dress dance & document the spiritual places where our ancestors walked. We hope you join us on our spiritual journey by uniting & healing those in your community.
