Kasaan Culture Camp

The Kasaan Culture Camp was established to continue passing on the cultural practices and teachings of Southeast Alaska Native traditions.  The Kasaan Culture Camp is a five-day event where kids from around Prince of Wales Island, as well as the Southeast Alaska region, come together in Kasaan, Alaska.  Drawing from knowledgeable Tribal elders, leaders and teachers, the participants are taught:   cedar bark weaving (including gather and curing bark), wood carving, language, beading, and traditional Haida arts.  The kids participate in hunting, fishing and gathering native foods.  They learn how to preserve and prepare foods and they eat meals from the foods they have gathered.
