Dancers of Damelahamid presents the diverse stories, songs, and dances of the Indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast and beyond at the seventh annual Coastal First Nations Dance Festival, March 4 to 9, 2014, in partnership with UBC’s Museum of Anthropology (MOA). An extraordinary selection of traditional performance and contemporary expression will be presented at MOA through School Workshops, Signature Evening Presentations, and afternoon Festival Stage shows.
In addition to diverse performances by internationally renowned artists from throughout British Columbia, Alaska, Yukon, and Washington, this year’s festival also welcomes South American dancer Adriana Arruna?tegui, from Lima, Peru, in her Canadian debut. Arruna?tegui – who has trained extensively in traditional, classical, and contemporary dance – will share community dances connected to agriculture and the time of harvest from the Cusco region of Peru.
