Totem 2.jpg


Deriving from the Ojibway word, dodaem, meaning "sibling" or "kin," totem has come to mean "that from which I draw my purpose, meaning, or being." It is an archetypal symbol, animal, or plant representing clan affiliations. To share a totem is to be considered family.

The group has performed repeatedly with the band, Stoneburner, and are often sought out for their alternative interpretations of modern belly dance. Members: Nephri, Ann, Hilda, and Paula Grace.
