Indigenous groups gather every other year in Juneau for Celebration, arriving by plane, ferry and dugout canoe. It’s a chance for Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian and others to dance and share their cultures. Due to the pandemic, this year’s Celebration is the first held in-person since 2018. Celebration planners and culture bearers share the significance of coming together once again on a special Juneau edition of Talk of Alaska.
