Summary / KeywordsA CD-ROM/audio CD based on Claxton’s performance project presented in Vancouver in 1999. Video clips and a “photo gallery” record parts of the collaborative work, with Peyote singers Verdell Primeaux and Johnny Mike singing healing prayer songs. Elder and anthropologist Bea Medecine writes on the Lakota view of art and artistic expression in contrast to a Euro-American concept of art. Alteen’s curatorial essay examines three of Claxton’s performance works and her concerns for environmental issues, ritual and spirituality, referring to the history of performance and the traditions of First Nations and other cultures. Claxton comments on the Ablakela work and the meaning of the sacred in a segment from a televised series. 3 bibl. ref.
