Traditional Dancing and Drumming

Based in Haines Junction, Yukon, the Dakwakada Dancers have an 18-year history of teachinig young people in Southern Tutchone and Tlingit cultures through the tradition of song and dance. The group was established by four sisters, all granddaughters of the late Annie Ned - a well-known and respected Southern Tutchone Elder. The group focuses on teaching their youth, with dancers starting as young as two years old. The Dakwakada Dancers are ambassadors of their culture, their community and the Yukon.
