Product Description

Details

Dance on a Sealskin by Barbara Winslow, illustrations by Teri Sloat

"Note to the readers:
This story is based on the Yup'ik Eskimo tradition of the 'first dance,' which can be performed at any age but is usually done before adolescence and can represent the person's offcially becoming a community member. The dance is done in the kashim at a village potlatch - a social gathering for dancing, gift-giving, being with friends, and honoring the dead. The songs and dances performed at a potlatch can be ancient or new. Often they hold a powerful spiritual significance and are a means of conveying oral history."
