Joanne Shenndoah ist eine moderne Amerikanerin, die in ihrem Beruf als Sängerin sehr erfolgreich ist. Als Indianerin kämpft sie für die Oneidas, ihren Stamm und um ihr heiliges Land, das ihnen der Staat New York wegnehmen will. Ein eindrucksvolles Portrait einer faszinierenden Frau, die im Einklang mit der Natur und ihrer Umgebung lebt. Regisseur James Virga wird seinen Film persönlich vorstellen.

 

>> English

„Dancing on Mother Earth” highlights Joanne Shenandoah’s close ties to her family, ancestry, and womanhood. Because of her family’s strong involvement in the day to day life of the Oneidas and the politics surrounding a land claim against New York state, Joanne and her husband, Doug George-Kanentiio, play pivotal roles in the future of the clan and the unfolding of history. Shenandoah juggles her musical career with an ongoing land dispute among the Oneidas themselves.
