Sundance series - Part 2

Part two of our series on the Sundance: Whapmagoostui held theirs in the month of July. The last Sundance meeting is on Thursday evening. On Friday, the dancers build thier lodge and then in the evening they feast one last time. From Friday night until Sunday evening, the Sundancers in Whapmagoostui danced. They had time to rest of course, but they did this without food and water. Blowing whistles to a drum has a place in the tradition. Melissa Natachequan wanted to find out more about the whistles, so she spoke with Jimmy George about it.
