  • The songs where created by males and lyrics where made from their life journeys and lessons during their nomadic adventures in the Arctic Circle. A type of story telling to the next generation.
alaska drum dance
Alaska- Drum Dance
  • Unlike the Canadian Drum Dance the Alaskan drum dance is a group style dance.
  • The group is made up of multiple drummers.
  • In this dance the drummers movements are minimal. The knees stay primarily bent throughout the song while keeping time with the beat.
  • The male dance movements usually mimic harpooning, surveying the area, and travel. As where, the female dancers mimic the scenes associated with taking care of an animal carcass after death such as cross-cutting, sewing the skins, and transporting the carcass.
