Celebration is a biennial festival of song and dance, food, arts, crafts, and fellowship of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures. Every other year the streets of Juneau fill with Native People of all ages dressed in the signature regalia of clans from throughout Southeast Alaska and beyond. Native Elders created Celebration in 1982 to bring Native People together to showcase and preserve their traditions and customs. Over the years the event has grown immensely and now draws about 5,000 people. It is a true honor to attend the event and bear witness to the importance of this cultural celebration to all of Alaska. I shot these images at Celebration 2014, and this collage appeared in the 2014 Sealaska Annual Report, published in 2015. This year’s Celebration will be held June 8 to 11. Put it on your calendar and we will see you there. Thank you for visiting. Camera: Nikon D800, Lens: Nikkor 80-200mm F/2.8 and Nikkor 24-120mm F/4, digital capture.
