nibiiwakamigkwe – Gigiigemin/We Heal Together: Jingle Dress Intentions
For over 100 years, the jingle dress has told stories of healing in Native communities. Anishinaabe dancers are taught that each of the cones carries prayers. In the Everything COVID
exhibit, community members are invited to write their own hopes, prayers and intentions onto unrolled jingle cones that will be attached to a jingle dress created during the pandemic. During Overture’s International Festival on January 29, 2022, Nibiiwakamigkwe will dance wearing the finished coned dress with songs from Native community members.
