Cher Obadiah, a culturally disconnected Urban Native, challenged herself to learn Women's Fancy Shawl in eight lessons over four months with the goal of dancing in her first powwow. After finding a teacher, her journey began with learning that the dance moves were more difficult than she anticipated. Tackling limiting beliefs, this story of ancestral strength and resurgence inspires with surprising outcomes. Cher learns a lot about different traditional dances from her instructor as she gets connected to her culture through pow wow dancing. An update four years later, reveals how connecting with our inner guidance aligns our life experiences which have the power to transform our happiness into fulfillment. 

Cher Obediah is Ojibway and Mohawk of the Turtle Clan from Six Nations Ontario with roots in Alderville First Nation. She’s an award winning filmmaker, a speaker, workshop facilitator and writer.
