Southeastern dance.

Worl, R (2002) retrieved on Tuesday November, 25-2007 from:

Southeast Alaska Native dance, and songs are very clan orientated. Today the people of southeast Alaska dance in memory of ancestors; family and friends. Traditionally Dancing was only performed during ceremonies. In the old way of southeastern Alaska dancing people danced with their own clan and sang songs owned only by their clan. Children are born into their mothers' clan and moiety. They are members of their mother's clan, and they are identified as children of their father's clan. Children dance with their clan and sing the songs owned by their clan.
