SFU’s First Nations Student Association hosted its fourth annual Indigenous Day last September. The event featured 20 Indigenous performers, ranging from spoken word artists to dancers and singers, along with representation from two dozen artisans and First Nations organizations. In this photo, Fancy Dance performer Nyla Carpenter dances in the round with audience members. In this ceremonial dance, which is popular at powwows, participants spread healing to each other while building unity together.
