Red Lake girl to take part in Macy’s parade
Selena Jourdain, a 12-year-old Red Lake girl, remembers when she first started dancing; it was almost as soon as she started walking.
Selena, a seventh-grader at Red Lake Middle School, will appear on the Oneida Indian Nation’s “True Spirit of Thanksgiving” float, which honors American Indian nations, and represents the Oneida Nation’s creation story with vivid characters, symbols and performers. The float, which premiered in 2008, features a 30-foot-tall white pine “Tree of Peace.”
Selena, who said she thinks she will be on the float and not actually dancing, is a member of the Native Pride Dancers, a Minneapolis-based troupe that aims to share the “spirit and beauty of Indigenous peoples” through dance, music and storytelling.
Selena said she can perform all the dances but is particularly strong as a fancy shawl and jingle dress dancer. Her favorite subject in school is science, and she wants to be a cosmetologist and a “world champion dancer” when she gets older.
