Join Frazer Sundown and the Ukwehuwe Connection dancers for hourly performances of traditional song and dance with water drum and corn husk doll stories.

Story through Song and Dance

Ukwehuwe Connection is a Dance troupe that brings Indigenous culture alive through song and dance. They bring Longhouse and Pow Wow styles while telling a story through their songs and dances in a way that teaches people about the many environments we live in throughout the world. Creation carries many meanings and this performance will engage in why we have stories about the natural aspects in the environment. It is a very exciting performance and you will gain a better understanding of Indigenous culture in a proper and authentic way.

Water Drum Story

The story of the Water Drum involves parts of the Haudenosaunee creation story that gives the understand of what our songs and dances are all about. This story will be orally shared and will give the understanding that music is medicine for the spirit and well being of everyone. The instruments that are used in the Longhouse have a reason behind why they are used and this story will explain those reasons.

Corn Husk Doll

This story is retold in a way that brings the origins of the story alive while involving what people go through today. A little girl and her grandfather bring about change in the world by learning the origin of the Corn Husk Doll and why it came to be. It brings unity among individuals in the world today. This story is about equality and respect for one another.

This is a partner program with the London Heritage Council for Doors Open London.
