Yukon and Alaska Bound, Part 12 - Adäka Cultural Festival


Whitehorse Adäka Cultural Festival


Adäka Cultural Festival

Performers at the Adäka Cultural Festival
It is now the 29th of June, and we are camped just outside Whitehorse at Caribou RV Park.



The Adäka Cultural Festival is on in Whitehorse and we want to take it in to get some the local flare. 



The Adäka Cultural Festival is held at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre in Whitehorse. This is a beautiful building.



The festival is held from June 27th to July 3rd this year. There are all kinds of performers and tons of crafts people demonstrating and selling their work. 



My personal favorite was the knife maker George Roberts. George makes some of the most beautiful knifes I have ever seen.




George Roberts and Anders discussing knives.
The blade, is made from surgical steel and is know as the "Bandit Blade". 


Some of his knifes have sold for up to $10,000. I want one!


George has a great sense of humor and is willing to talk and explain things. Here is a great article on George.


The performers at the festival are all local people from families to seasoned artists. 


Make sure to look for the Adäka Cultural Festival and their Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre when visiting Whitehorse and Yukon.

Here are some more pictures.
