The Round Dance Tradition and Event

This past Thursday, White-Lightning Clark and Jake Rogers co-facilitated our first Centre for Social Justice lunch-and-learn of the new year. The two Lambton College students and members of the Aboriginal Students' Council led us through a very informative overview of the history and significance of the Round Dance.

Thank you to Jake Rogers and White-Lightning Clark, who spoke with us
 about what the Round Dance means to them.
White-Lightning explained that the tradition began in the Cree nation, but it's since spread to other aboriginal cultures, too. Today, it's become a very social event. Both White-Lightning and Jake shared stories of round dances they've attended.

If you'd like to know more about the Round Dance tradition, keep in mind that the first Lambton College Round Dance is coming up on Friday, January 30. The Round Dance will be held at the Lambton College Event Centre from 6-10 pm, and it's free. All are welcome!
