Sagowsko
Sagowsko was inspired by the Anishnaabe (Ojibway) hoop dance story taught when Sandra Lamouche first started learning to hoop dance in 2005. Pukawiss, the disowned
one, was fascinated with nature. His father, who wished he was more like his older brother, a great hunter and warrior, disowned him. Pukawiss left his family and performed for
different villages, eventually creating the hoop dance. Sagowsko expresses the sacredness and strengths of Native women, the exploration and discovery of nature, the devastation
of loss and disconnection, and finally, feeling the heartbeat of the earth and reconnecting. Sagowsko represents a sort of healing ritual one may experience when able to be oneself, to live in a connected way with identity and the world. sandralamouche.com

SANDRA LAMOUCHE (Lethbridge, Cree)
Sagowsko, "bush woman," is the nickname of Sandra Lam- ouche, who is a member of the International Dance Council and holds a B.A. in Native American Studies from the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. Sandra is completing a Master of Arts Degree in Indigenous Studies from Trent University in Peter- borough, Ontario.
Dance is one of the ways that we reconnect the sacred hoop, which has been broken through colonization and assimilation as we recreate our reality to benefit all of creation.
I am my ancestors. WE are our ancestors. Not just descen- dants of our ancestors, but we are experiencing the same things they have experienced for years! We are fighting the same fight. We are being our ancestors, by being ourselves. Sandra Lamouche
