What You'll See!!

You will see the next generation of Kwakwa̱k̕a̱'wakw sharing our culture to educate the world about our ancient songs, dances, teachings and values. These teachings are still being passed on today to the children of T'sasała.


You will witness the dances of the T̕seka, our red cedar bark ceremony. You will see the traditional dances that connect us to the land, sky, and sea. The T̕seka will be followed by the T̕ła'sala ceremony - peace dances then finally the A̱mlala or fun dances were you will get a chance to join in.
