  • A document of a personal gift in the form of a dance. Peter George, a Native Indian living on the West Coast of Canada, depicts in this dance the moment a deer is shot. The dance implies a deep ritual force which does not stop with the dance alone. The giving of the dance, and the performance as gift, is equally ritualistic, governed by specific aboriginal laws.
