About Tribal Vision Dance

Tribal Vision Dance is a First Nations dance group based on the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve in Ontario, Canada. We strive to share our culture through educational multimedia performances and workshops. We utilize contemporary powwow style dances and songs as well as traditional Haudenosaunee dances to give people a glimpse of modern First Nations cultural and artistic practices. Dance is very important to North American Indigenous people, it is a way to celebrate life and give thanks for all of creation. Tribal Vision enjoys sharing our culture through songs and dances with audiences from around the world. Over the years we have had the opportunity to perform across Canada, Germany, Turkey, Austria and Norway.
