Please join us this Friday morning for an exciting performance by Yaaw Tei Yi Dance Group. They will be performing in the rotunda from 11:00am-12:00pm.Yaaw Tei Yi is a traditional Tlingit cultural group from Juneau, Alaska whose mission is to teach and promote Tlingit/Haida song and dance. Deriving their name from the legends of the Kiks.adi (Frog) Clan from Sitka, Alaska, the group performs traditional songs “belonging” to specific clans and which cannot be sung without the clans’ permission. Like maps, these songs explain where in Alaska the clans originate.Image Credit: Photo by Leonda Levchuk, Smithsonian Institution.
