On Nov. 5, the Git-Hoan Dance Group traveled to Juneau for special performances to honor Native American Heritage Month. Auke Bay Elementary School is grateful and honored by the help and willingness of the Sealaska Heritage Institute and the Git-Hoan dancers to provide an opportunity for Auke Bay students to experience this extraordinary performance. We would like to thank Rosita Worl, president of Sealaska Heritage Institute, the staff at SHI, Sarah Dybdahl, Ralph Wolfe, Rico Worl, and Brian Wallace for their work in sharing such a treasure. In addition to SHI, our appreciation is also extended to the Rasmuson Foundation, Harper Arts Touring Fund, which partially funded the dance group's travel expenses. We thank Tlingit Elder Al McKinley, of Auk Kwaan, and his family for welcoming the Tsimshian Dance group to Auke Bay.
