MEDICINE FIDDLE (1991)

Medicine Fiddle explores the music and dance heritage of the Fur Trade among Native and Métis families on both sides of the US and Canadian border. Fiddling and step (clog) dancing was introduced to Native peoples by French fur trappers in the late 1600s and again a century later by Irish and Scottish trappers, lumberjacks and home-steaders. Over the past two centuries, in the confines of family gatherings on remote reservations, this music has survived and has permeated the cultural memory of mixed-blood descendants. Some of the music and dance has absorbed a Native musical influence, and a Native spiritual culture sustains it. Directed and Produced by Michael Loukinen (81 minutes)
