Home

The Khast'an drummers are a group of Lheidli T'enneh members and friends who have passion for the drum and the cycles of life it represents. 

The name Khast'an means Fireweed in the Lheidli dialect of Dakelh.

The Khast’an drummers are like the beautiful fireweed plant which represents new growth following a forest fire, the coming and peak of summer, provision of nourishment, having medicinal properties and binding qualities. The Khast’an group is constantly growing with the goal of promoting the Lheidli T’enneh language, history and culture through song and dance. 

Our motivation is not-for-profit however we do suggest a $250 - $500 honorarium which includes costs of transportation and practices, preparation and warm-up beforehand. The funds raised cover travel, clothing, regalia, space rentals, professional development and other fees including community contributions where the group gives back to the community.

Please contact us for specific rates and availabilities. 

Bookings require a minimum of two weeks advance notice and are subject to availability of drum group members. Confirmation will be provided a minimum of one week in advance of the event.

Members may include but are not limited to: Helen Seymour, Marcel Gagnon, Clarence John, Brenda Wilson, Ann Bozoki, Deryl Seymour, Merle Seymour, Curtis Seymour, Jennifer Pighin, Dominique Bozoki, Sam Seymour, Nate Seymour, Joshua Seymour, Pat Seymour, Kristine Seymour, Justice Seymour, Tyler Seymour, Jackie John, Edith Frederick, Crystal Reierson, Wesley Mitchell, Belinda Joseph, Cheryl Webster, Henry Morgan, Lorrie Adams, Deidra Dominic, Kaitlyn John and others.
