The Creeland Dancers are an Indigenous dance group that specialize in a fusion of Metis jigging and square dancing. The group was formed nearly 40 years ago by Cree elders Therese Seesequasis and her late husband Ken Seesequasis as a way to promote culture and create opportunity for youth.
The Creeland Dancers are considered Western Canada’s Finest Square Dancers and are available for all occasions. The performance provides not only a high energy, entertaining show, but an educational experience focused on First Nations and Metis cultural enrichment and reconciliation.
The Creeland Dancers have toured all across the province of Saskatchewan, throughout Canada and across North America.
In 1993, the group toured Atlantic Canada as part of the Maritime Fiddle championships. In 1994 the group was invited to open the Dollywood Fall Festival at Dolly Parton’s theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In 1999, the group rehearsed for two weeks straight and performed for the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards in Regina, Saskatchewan. In 2001, the group was invited to open the cultural pavillion at the World Track and Field Games in Edmonton, Alberta. Since then, the group has been touring, performing, and entertaining crowds all throughout Canada.
