Jenneli is a shy young girl who feels that she is nothing special, until she learns about the Metis RedRiver jig from her Grandma Lucee. Jenneli loved to have fun with Grandma Lucee doing the RedRiver jig, until one day, Grandma Lucee entered Jenneli into the jigging contest at the Lakeside Fair. Jenneli was both horrified and excited, but with Grandma Lucee's encouragement, love and support, Jenneli placed her selfdoubts and fears aside to dance in the contest. Jenneli's Dance is a story that instills a sense of pride in the Metis culture, and deals with issues of overcoming low selfesteem.
