Several thousand singers, dancers and audience members are back home – or headed there – after being part of Celebration 2014.
The four-day cultural festival brought Tlingits, Haidas, Tsimshians and other Alaskan and Canadian Natives to several Juneau performance halls.
One of Wrangell’s groups was the Old Willow Town Dancers, with students in the community’s Johnson-O’Malley Program. Here’s a sampling of their performance.
The group performed at last week’s Celebration 2014, a Southeast Alaska Native cultural festival in Juneau. It’s organized by the Sealaska Heritage Institute.
