G’ana’k’w Haan Dei I Jin Family DANCE GROUP

Haan Dei Ijin is a well-established Tlingit dance and cultural group in the Seattle area. Our history as a group dates back to the founding group Alaskan Native Cultural Heritage Association. Our membership includes 25 plus members from four years of age to 80 and includes both Tlingit and Haida members. We share our culture and perform at schools, many indigenous events and gatherings, other venues and we perform at Celebration every two years. A main focus of our group is on our children. We teach them the songs, the culture, and feature them in all of our performances.

We continue to draw new members who want to a connection with their people, which is often difficult outside of Alaska. They find a home with our group and enjoy learning the songs and dances, performing and joining in cultural activities with us.

We work hard, with many volunteer hours, to support our group and our activities. Our children are our future leaders so we encourage them to showcase and be proud of their traditions and culture of our ancestors.
