His presentation explores the components of traditional First Nations song and dance as a tool crucial to survival of First Nations peoples in modern society. Culture as an identity condition when defining a particular group will be the feature topic. The focus group will be the Blackfoot nation, more particularly the Blood Tribe situated in Southern Alberta Canada, also referred to as the Kainai Peoples. The presentation will describe and examine various traditional dances and ceremonial songs that demonstrate the passing down of oral traditions, teachings and learned culture. Preserved history is an important factor that will be addressed, as participation in these ceremonies was the only means by which culture was transmitted from generation to generation. Loss of identity, its individual and societal ramifications, and its impact on past and present generations are a necessary part of the dialogue when examining culture as a tool of reintegration for First Nations peoples.
