The Gitmaxmak’ay Nisga’a Dancers of Prince Rupert were hosted by the Victoria Native Friendship Centre as featured performers at this year’s National Aboriginal Day celebrations in BC’s Capital.

More than 40 members of the Prince Rupert-based performance group demonstrated their distinctive singing and drumming style at the 2011 First People’s Festival held at Victoria’s Spirit Square on Sunday, June 19 and again at a pole-raising ceremony two days later.

Thanks to travel funding from both the VNFC and the Provincial Capital Commission, the group also toured their provincial Capital, visiting Government House, home to Lt. Governor Steven Point, and touring the Parliament Buildings and the Royal BC Museum.
