Summer Institute 2015. Indigenous Existential Resistance: The Sundance Practice

Posted on

Summer Institute 2015. Indigenous Existential Resistance: The Sundance Practice

EDUC 490V 96A | EDST 565B 96A

Registration is available for Credit and Non-Credit. See Registration & Fees for details.


The Sundance Practice

This course was designed in partnership with elders from the Kainai Aboriginal community. The original idea for this course stems from a vision, request and invitation from these elders.

Course Description

Indigenous people face a difficult paradox related to the two challenges of surviving within individualist, competitive and consumerist societies while keeping alive alternative ways of knowing and being within them.

The sundance is one of the practices that affirms a different existential approach to life not defined by modern global capitalism.

The course combines lectures and seminars at UBC in Vancouver and a ten-day visit to the Kainai reserve in Alberta, which includes a four-day observation of a Sundance ceremony.

Course Objectives

Participants will need to:

  • locate the sundance practice within political and existential Indigenous struggles
  • describe the origins of the sundance practice in North America
  • compare epistemological and ontological assumptions related to your engagement with this practice
  • demonstrate an understanding of indigenous protocols for community and ceremonial engagement
  • reflect on the lived experience of these protocols in practice
  • discuss the context and implications of this practice for Aboriginal communities in Canada
