Video: Winnemem Wintu’s War Dance


For four days in May the Winnemem Wintu Tribe held a War Dance along the shores of the McCloud River in Northern California. The Dance was to draw attention to the tribe’s upcoming Coming of Age Ceremony and its request for the United States Forest Services to close down the river during the ceremony. Below are videos from each day of the War Dance shot by Will Doolittle.
