The Coastal First Nations Dance Festival

27-Feb-2018 - 04-Mar-2018



Festival Dates: February 27 - March 4, 2018
Venue: UBC Museum of Anthropology, 6393 NW Marine Drive in Vancouver

The Dancers of Damelahamid produce the annual Coastal First Nations Dance Festival in partnership with the UBC Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. The Festival is a celebration of the stories, songs and dances of the Indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast of North America. The festival presents the rich artistic practices of artists from British Columbia, the Yukon, Alaska and Washington State as well as guest national and international artists and demonstrates that these practices are very much alive, vibrant and relevant today.

The Dancers of Damelahamid have had the honour to present many Indigenous dance artists from diverse cultural backgrounds including: Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, Kwakwakawakw, Gitxsan, Tsimshian, Nisga'a, Haida, Tagish and Tlingit Nations. Guest artists from across Canada, as well as international artists from South America, New Zealand, and Australia, have been invited to share their artforms, allowing the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival to connect with a global community of Indigenous dance.
