Tribal Vision Dance is a First Nations dance group based on the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve in Ontario. Dance is very important to North American Indigenous people, it is a way to celebrate life and give thanks for all things. The members of Tribal Vision enjoy sharing our culture through songs and dances with audiences from around the world. Over the years we have had the opportunity to perform across Canada, Germany, Turkey, Austria and Norway. We have performed with Nelly Furtado at WE Day, Aboriginal Pavilion for the Pan Am Games and The Olympic Torch relay.
