Attraction details
Owner description: Tlingit Native Dancers enter with beautiful regalia, mesmerizing the audience with ancient songs handed down through generations of these first Sitka peoples. The performance begins with the resonating sound of the box drum and the aroma of burning cedar in a traditional style Tlingit Clan House. Learn a few words of Tlingit and see one of the Pacific NW's largest carved house screens.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

The demonstration really helped us understand more about the culture....plus it was fun to observe. There is a tremendous investment by clan adults in helping children learn about the culture so that the culture continues.

“Great family event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

We were made confortable around the room and introduced to the Tlingit culture. The dancers were wonderful. The men, women and children were wonderfully dressed and so enthusiastic, it was easy to join in when we were invited. It was very educational for us all.

“AWESOME !!! = a MUST SEE !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

This troupe of Native American dancers - including some 'little ones' - was spectacular !

The M.C. did an outstanding job of explaining the history & symbolism of the dances & costumes !

The hi-lite was being able to get up & participate in the final dance !

We arrived three minutes late, and the door was locked. We never did see the performance. You've been warned!

TourOperatonsMngr, Manager at Sitka Tribe Dance Performances, responded to this review, 21 June 2013
We do seek to start our shows in a timely manner so that those guests on a schedule will not be disserviced. Due to the darkened theater we try not to open our doors after performance begins so as not to distract either the audience or dancers. When possible we station a staff member to explain this policy to late arrivals but often we are all involved with the dance. We're sorry you missed the show.
