Conceived, Directed and Choreographed by Muriel Miguel. Muriel's unique teaching and development style of "Storyweaving" interweaves three separate stories. The first story, reflects a portion of the traditional Haudenosaunee creation story Sky Woman Falling. The second deals with controversial issues around battery. The third explores cultural renewal, a story of moving beyond survival and resistance to a spirit of celebration. This is all performed in dance, modern and traditional with original contemporary and popular music.
"Through story telling and dance, I wish to suggest to the younger generation that there is a youthful and optimistic character to our ancient culture." Muriel Miguel.

This is a film for Native Urban and Reservation people, for all types of diverse communities.
