My family and I experienced a wonderful tour with our guide Mel. She was informative and told us several Totem legends. The young dancers were engaging and fun. Wonderful stories of how Raven provided light to the people. Mel, you are inspirational.

We were there at the tail-end of the season and had small attendance but the cast performed wonderfully. Talented youth participating along with other family members in stories from their tribes. Great insight into their culture.
