The Annual Haida Culture Camp occurs the last full week of July each year. The Haida Culture Camp began in 1996 with elder's Clara Natkong and Miijuu Claude Morrison storytelling in the Kassan Big House. It has developed into a joyous, cultural event which includes dance groups this last year from Seattle, Metlakatla, Klawock and Hydaburg. The Camp begins with four days of cultural classes, with all volunteer staff providing both classes and meals. As can be seen from the images, there is a great cultural revitalization which is happening in Hydaburg, Alaska. The Hydaburg Cooperative Association (Tribe) hosts the event and many volunteers, entities and individuals provide funding, support and participate in this event.
