Canada’s “First Nations” have a deep and rich heritage and these stories are told in a myriad of entertainment formats from Hoop Dancers to a “Talking Stick” ceremony. Many events choose to have elders from the traditional lands we are on come and perform a Blessing of the event. Contact us today to create your own First Nations entertainment for your Vancouver conference or event.
This colourful troupe has performed across Canada and internationally at cultural festivals in countries such as Switzerland, Taiwan, and Japan. The dance group consists of elders and youth of the Squamish Nation.
White Thunder Dance Theatre was founded in 1987 by Champion Hoop dancer Gary Abbott. The goal of the group is to promote First Nations culture within their own culture and with all cultures. The theatre troupe, based in Chilliwack BC, is made up of dancers from all over our province. They have traveled and performed throughout North America sharing their songs.
