I wasn't sure what to expect with this experience, but it is something I will never forget. I was quite moved while observing the tribal dancers. It felt like they were sharing something very special with us. At the end of the performance you have the opportunity to participate. While this is not something I would normally do, something drew... More

Truly enjoyed watching the performance of theTlingit tribal dancers. Loved how they included adults, teens and small children in the dances and story telling. The last dance was really fun where they invited the audience to join in the dance and then stay and meet the dancers

The native youth and dancers put on a great show. The EMC was even funny. Nothing not to like. A historical mock up of an authentic native lodge.

Lots of Tlingit young people (and some adults) in their native costumes dancing like crazy. You get a little bit of culture, a lot of drums, and an invitation to join in the dancing. (Do it!)

We easily got tickets to this 30 minute show of native dancers. Love that it is all native run and performed. It's great that the tribe can share their culture with others in this way. Loved the dance and the Tlingit people sharing their culture. The audience was small, but was really into the dancing.

in the dances make this special. The replica of a traditional house and the use of ceremonial dress make this short performance well worthwhile.

The show started out slow but picked up after the first act. A very authentic experience put on by volunteers. We enjoyed it and would recommend it to people visiting the area.
