Please visit Gonwah Desgohwah White Pine Dancers for a preview of the Interactive Live performance during the Inter-tribal! For the past eight years, Gonrah Desgohwah White Pine Dancers have performed for over 35,000 guests both locally and internationally in some of Southern Ontario’s most celebrated educational venues! Audiences across Southern Ontario and beyond have stated that our performance was not only entertaining, but educational as well. Many audience members commented that they had learned more about First Nations culture during our one hour performance then they had anywhere else!
