Native Teens performing a Ceremonial Dance

This is so moving, a kid is learning/keeping his cultural heritage!  A Cree teen caught on camera performing a ceremonial dance on a moving escalator is grabbing attention online.  

In the video, 19-year-old Donovan Shirt performs a traditional grass dance as the escalator treads move beneath him. Off camera, Justin Wright Cardinal can be heard singing.  

The video was recorded by Gary Moostoos, a well-known Indigenous cultural advisor in Edmonton, at the LRT platform beneath Commerce Place as the group waited for a train.
I love the drums..
