Hi, Rhonda
=20
There is some original footage, and lots of still photographs, of the
Hopi snake dance taken by Edward Curtis in "COMING TO LIGHT: Edward S.
Curtis and the North American Indians."
www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/ctl.html. =20
=20
Curtis wrote that "In reality it is not a dance, but a beautiful
dramatized prayer for rain. If the gods are angry and withhold the rain,
famine and subsequent death stalk the land."
=20
There are also Curtis photographs and a lengthy discussion of the Piegan
Sundance.
=20
All the best,
John Hoskyns-Abrahall

------_=_NextPart_001_01C7C963.FC39484A-- VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
