Ya̱x̱watła̱ns Book 12

Ya̱x̱watła̱ns Book 12


Ya̱x̱watła̱n's! means "We will dance!" This book describes some of the dances we Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw perform. It doesn't discuss all of our many dances. We have chosen a number of those which are most commonly done at our potlatches. The descriptions are for our children, many of whom have hereditary rights to dances and who now learn dancing in culture progreammes which have been set up on north Vancouver Island area schools.
