In 1997, during the second year of the Chinook Winds Aboriginal Dance Program, Aboriginal artists from various Nations and dance traditions, along with experienced mentors from the Inuvialuit, Eastern Arctic, and Greenlandic traditions, worked together with Program Director and Choregrapher Alejandro Ronceria to create this new choreography. Their language, their songs and stories, their dances and their landscape were the inspiration for this performance work, entitled Light and Shadow.

Chinook Winds is perhaps the most active and creative dance study and performance program for Natives in the hemisphere. The Aboriginal Arts Program and the intention of the Chinook Winds Aboriginal Dance program was to create a safe working space, build community and respect for the individual and their process of learning.
