The Good Life

James Jones dances for crowds all over the world, but every step he takes is always to the beat of his own drum.

"The fact that you can still sit there, and have your identity, in spite of what society has thrown at you, that's what makes you amazing, that's what makes you brilliant and powerful!" Knowledge Keeper Karen J. Pheasant describes the beauty of our dances, while James Jones - award-winning Hoop Dancer - shows us his moves.

To see more of Karen and James, watch the episode Decolonizing Dance in WIOT TV Season 3 on APTN.
