Bears Stars and Trees - The Film

What we see and what we do not see – the knowledge of the Seven Grandfathers Teachings brings ancient Indigenous
wisdom to a world desperate for salvation.
This film was the result of a collaboration between contemporary and Indigenous artists, a meeting ground with Ballet and
traditional hoop dance.

Ce que nous voyons et ce que nous ne voyons pas – la connaissance des sept grands-pères apporte la sagesse traditionnelle
autochtone à un monde désespéré, pour son salut.

Ce film est le fruit d’une collaboration entre artistes contemporains et autochtones, lieu de rencontre avec le ballet et la
danse traditionnelle du cerceau.
