“Enduring Spirit – dance of two nations” is a cross-cultural dance event which interweaves pow-wow dancers and modern dancers in a tale spanning four centuries of contact between Native Americans and Europeans. The resulting rich tapestry of American history combines dance with talks by native elders who address the legacy of dance within their culture. The piece was performed before native and non-native communities in Washington and Idaho.
