This performance was a good addition to the tour given by our driver. The First Nation cultures set up a society that we could all learn from. It was good to see the younger performers carrying on the traditions of their people. The show is about 30 minutes or less and should not be missed.

Very entertaining. Our guide told us many stories that painted a picture about the history of the tribes and their heritage. Learned alot. I would not have appreciated seeing all of the art work and totem poles around alaska if I did not go on this tour.

I was not a very long dance performance. It involved all age groups of the participating families. It is very colourful. They get the ordinance involved. The venue is in the centre of town. A must to see

Sitka is an amazing cultural experience. The dance is another must see in Sitka. It is a great introduction into the history if you have not otherwise delved in before your visit.

The tribal members graciously share their culture in this dance performance. Their songs & dances are remarkable, and their regalia is awe-inspiring.

The day performance was interesting but dancers did not appear too enthusiastic. Most were kids. It was interesting but very short. I am not sure how much drum banging one can endure anyway. The costumes were wonderful and it was great to see the Tinglit culture living on through the youth.

Thank you for your comments. As you noted dancing allows the Tlingit culture to be real and current for our youth. Therefore many of the dancers especially during summer school break are kids. We believe this gives visitors and our children a growth opportunity. The clothing worn for dancing is called regalia and is an integral part of Tlingit life.... More
