Watch a traditional tribal performance that reflects the history of the Tlingits as a prelude to a feast of fresh seafood and other Alaskan dishes. The Tlingits have lived in this part of southeastern Alaska for thousands of years and their traditions run deep. They express them through interpretive songs, dance and storytelling. During the performance at the Native Heritage Center Theater, the dancers will be dressed in full regalia, including masks and headdresses. The entertainers will share their history from the time when advancing glaciers forced them out of their original homeland in Glacier Bay. They called their new settlement Hoonah, a word that means “where the north wind doesn’t blow.” Many of their performances express the significance of indigenous animals such as ravens, seals and eagles. Others tell of the tribe’s struggles with the harsh environment and poignant social issues. Following the performance, you will dine on a sumptuous meal of classic Alaskan dishes.
