Under a sweltering July sky, participants in the sacred Sundance ceremony go four days without food or water. At the end of this gruelling experience, they’ll pierce the flesh of their chests in an offering to the Creator. Long misunderstood and once banned, the Sundance ritual is now helping to bring personal and social healing to East Coast Indigenous communities. With The Sacred Sundance, First Nations director Brian J. Francis journeys into the traditions of North American Aboriginal spirituality.
