A group of Cree Indians from Canada were invited to attend the opening of Duncarron Medieval village and hill form near Stiorling in Scotland for the ‘Spirits of Duncarron’ event in May 2019. The group performed a series of traditional dances to music, including ladies jingle and men’s fancy. The Cree (Nehiyawak) are the most populous and widely distributed Indigenous peoples in Canada.
The Clanranald Trust for Scotland hosted the ‘Spirits of Duncarron’ event at the Duncarron Medieval Village near Stirling in Scotland. A number of countries sent traditional performers to be involved and bless the site, including the aborigines from Australia, Maori from New Zealand, Cree Indians from Canada and Aztecs from South America.
This special site allows visitors to experience life from Celtic times to Early Medieval, with many of those involved in the Trust including Saor Patrol and Combat International, having taken part in many TV and film productions and worked with Russell Crowe, a long standing supporter of this Trust and the project.
