Description

Christians have cathedrals, Muslims their mosques. For Native Canadians used to praying in natural settings, the world is a sacred space. In Aboriginal spirituality, the use of drumming, singing and smouldering sweet grass can draw unwanted attention in the city. This video presents how a group of Aboriginal women celebrate their rights to worship in the city. National Film Board (NFB).
