Kumugwe Dancers

The Kumugwe Dancers take great pride in preserving the ancient traditions of their ancestors.

Through sharing the songs and dances of the K’omoks and Kwakwaka’wakw peoples, the Kumugwe Dancers are able to help facilitate respect and understanding within the local community and communities abroad.

Taking their name from the traditional Bighouse that sits within the heart of the K’omoks First Nation, members of the dance troupe have been practicing and performing together since 2001. The Kumugwe Dancers feel that by encouraging young members of their community to learn the ancient songs and dances of their people, they will ensure the survival of the culture for generations to come.

Thank you to the First Peoples’ Cultural Council’s Aboriginal Arts Development Awards program – Sharing Traditional Arts Across Generations for their contribution towards our Living Legends – A Creation Story Through Dance project.
