Petoskey Film Series will be screening the Manda Bee Kee Dance Troupe Documentary on Friday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Building. During the 1950s, The Manda-Bee-Kee (Water Wonderland) Dance Troupe launched a revitalization of culture and traditions began at a time when racial prejudices were strongly embedded in society. To capture the story of this group, this project produced a short documentary telling the story of the Manda-Bee-Kee Dance Troupe, which will help preserve the knowledge, stories, traditions, and teachings of the traditional Anishinaabe songs and dances. The film they created documented the historical, societal, and cultural impact the Manda-Bee-Kee Dance Troupe had on the Odawa and Native Americans throughout Michigan. David Dominic will introduce the film and tell us about its history and production.
