Would you like to see the Dance of the Killer Whales?

Then come see the Cape Fox Dancers perform at the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle, Washington.

The Cape Fox Dancers are members of the Tlingit Indian tribes. Sixty members strong, they drum, chant and dance. Traditional performances include the Dance of the Killer Whale and the Welcoming of the Chiefs. The Cape Fox Dancers wear colorful fringed blankets, white fur caps with ermine (a small weasel) tails, and wooden masks of ravens, eagles, bears, and wolves.

Held during Memorial Day weekend, the Northwest Folklife Festival is one of the largest events in the country focusing on folk, ethnic, and traditional art. This annual celebration promotes the culture and traditions of the region's Jewish, Native American, African American, Polynesian, Filipino American, Chicano and Mexican communities.
