Congratulations to the Le-La-La Dancers for the rave review they received from their performance at the 2013 Festival of Native Peoples in Cherokee, North Carolina.

An awed spectator emailed in a very nice review of their performance: "Through the dancers inspired movements, mythical masks and costumes I was transported delightfully from being an Elder to feeling like a child in awe and wonder of the story that was being imparted. I found myself smiling, laughing & also with feigned fright wide-eyed and wondering."

The Le-La-La Dancers do an excellent job of promoting British Columbia's Aboriginal tourism!
