NEWS CCW Interim Managing Editor JUNEAU - When the Yaaw Tei Yi Native dance group first formed eight years ago, they never thought they would end up performing outside of Juneau, let alone at a presidential inauguration. Now, the group is preparing to travel to Washington, D.C. to help celebrate the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama.

The Yaaw Tei Yi Native dance group performed Nov. 28 at Juneau's Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall in celebration of National American Indian Heritage Month and the first arts and crafts fair in the hall. The performance was free and open to the public. The group accepted an invitation to perform in Washington, D.C. in celebration of President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration.
