Juneau, Alaska

Sealaska Heritage Institute is accepting applications for dance groups that wish to perform at Celebration 2024.

Applications due April 5, 2024

SHI’s Board of Trustees named Dakhká Khwáan Dancers (People of the Inland) as the lead dance group for Celebration 2024. Dakhká Khwáan Dancers (pictured above), a Tlingit group based in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada, will lead all dancers for the first time since the group initially performed at Celebration in 2008. The honor is given to one dance group every two years. The lead dance group is responsible for leading the Grand Entrance and Grand Exit songs, during which every participating dance group dances across the stage to mark the beginning and end of Celebration. That requires the lead group to drum and sing for up to three hours straight during both processions.
