Da Kų Nän Ts’étthèt
(Our House is Waking up the Land)
2nd Biannual Festival of Aboriginal Dance, Singing & Drumming
Da Kų Cultural Centre, Haines Junction
June 2-4, 2017
Tsur khȩl (the woodpecker) is the symbol of our 2017 festival. The most common woodpecker species returning to dákeyi (our country) are the Hairy Woodpecker and the Northern Flicker (pictured). The familiar “tap, tap, tap” sound they make helps to wake up the land each spring. Artwork by Frances Oles.
