Snake Dance: 2013 Honor The Earth

The 40th Annual Honor The Earth Homecoming Celebration & Powwow held July 16-21, 2013 on the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Reservation in Northern Wisconsin. The Snake Dance (July 19, 2013). The dance usually starts winding around the arena. When the dancers spread apart, it symbolizes the shedding of the snake's skin. When the dancers coil and clap hands, the snake is hibernating. When the dancers dance across the stick, it symbolizes dancing across the river into the afterlife. The dance ends with all dancers clapping in a circle in celebration of life and afterlife.
