Dene Drumming & Dancing

The Kaska Dena Drummers are an intergenerational traditional drumming group, founded in the late 1980s. The Kaska Dena Drummers have worked with Kaska Elders who have taught them the traditional drumming songs of the Kaska and Mountain Slavey people. Based in Ross River, Yukon, the Kaska Dena Drummers share their songs in communities across the Yukon and at the annual Adäka Cultural Festival. They performed for audiences from around the world at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
