End of the Road music festival day 2

The second day of the End of the Road Music Festival was equally entertaining as the first. A couple local bands played and then the Inuvik drum dancers performed. I had been waiting to see a show like this since I got here. Very impressive! What I found most interesting was that the group consisted of multiple generations. It was cool to see kids right down to about 2 years old involved in the traditional dancing and drumming. I’ll post the pictures I have now but have to wait ages for videos to upload to youtube so I can post the link on here!

It was a pretty awesome afternoon, I wish the pictures were better (I wish my camera hadn’t been stolen). Hopefully I’ll get a new one soon and be able to post better pictures!

Well that’s all for now! 🙂

 

Edit: Here’s the youtube link to a clip of some drum dancing!
