3:25 PM - 3:40 PM

Sandra Lamouche

Sandra Lamouche- Champion Hoop Dancer & Award Winning Educator

I believe that Native cultures are the epitome of healthy and balanced living. Dance is one way we can return to the holistic ways of life practiced by our ancestors- Nitona Miyo Pimadisiwin (Seeking a Good Life), which is a balance of spiritual, physical, emotional and mental health.

The concept of ‘Nitona Miyo Pimadisiwin’ is described by Dr. Micheal Hart (Cree) as a process of learning, growing and being-in- becoming (seeking one’s purpose in life). Hart’s book ‘Seeking Mino-Pimadisiwin An Aboriginal Approach to Helping can be found here: http://www.fernwoodpublishing.ca/Seeking-Mino-Pimatisiwin-Michael-Hart/
