In June 2014, the Aboriginal Cultural Festival in Victoria, British Columbia, brought together First Nations singers and dancers from the Pacific Northwest Coast. Among the groups was the Le-La-La Dancers, a traditional Kwakwaka’wakw dance company from Northern Vancouver Island. According to the Le-La-La website:
The group has shared their culture by entertaining and educating throughout the world for over 25 years under the direction of George Me’las Taylor.Below the squiggle are some photographs of the group at the Aboriginal Cultural Festival.
Caution: these are not “powwow” dances nor do the dancers look like the stereotypical Plains Indians.
