WIIKWEMKOONG UNCEDED TERRITORY – Karen Pheasant-Neganigwane has been rather emotional lately as the member of Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory is days away from being inducted into a national hall of fame for her lengthy advocacy of Indigenous dancing.
Pheasant-Neganigwane will be inducted into the Canadian Dance Hall of Fame by Dance Collection Danse (DCD) this coming Sunday, Nov. 5, at a ceremony in Toronto.
The event will be held at the Palais Royale in Toronto.
Pheasant-Neganigwane, who now lives in Lethbridge, Alta., was notified this past spring about her upcoming induction.
“I was shocked,” she said. “I was not aware that we had a Canadian dance hall of fame.”
