Git-Hoan Shaman and Land Otters Dance

The Git-Hoan Dancers perform a dance of the Tsimshian people in this video from the Dance Arts Toolkit series. The dance tells the story of evil land otters who disguise themselves as beautiful girls in order to trick a group of young men. A powerful shaman finally defeats them.
