Indian Dance was selected by the Society of Canadian Painter-Etchers
and Engravers as the presentation print for its members in 1952. It shows
the costumes and headdresses of the North-West American Indian women
of Nootka, British Columbia, and is the first print by Andrews to acknowledge
her new Canadian surroundings.
