British Columbia is the traditional territory of a wide range of First Nation groups with many talents and expressions that make them unique. Art, dance, song and drumming have long been traditions passed down from generation to generation and on March 9 - 13, 2011, the Museum of Anthropology and Dancers of Damelahamid presented the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival, a spectacular combination of beautiful costumes, unique masks and dancers, drummers and singers both young and old! Here are some photos from our own visit to this amazing Festival!
