Evening Program Details
Experience magnificent Northwest Coast masks as they come to life in the glimmering firelight of a Kwakwaka’wakw ceremonial house. The Lelooska Family shares the songs, dances, stories and masks which display the rights, crests and privileges bestowed on them by the late Chief James Aul Sewide.

Chief Tsungani and the Lelooska Family dancers bring each mask to life with its song, dance and story. The performance is designed to give the audience an understanding of Northwest Coast First Nations culture, as well as a feeling of intimate participation in this living history.
