The Festival is a celebration of the stories, songs, and dances of the Indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast of North America. The festival presents the rich cultural traditions practiced by dance artists from British Columbia, the Yukon, Alaska and Washington State as well as guest international artists and demonstrates that these practices are very much alive, vibrant and relevant today.
