We empower people to feel rooted, connected, transformed, and energized through interacting with cultural spaces that fuse visual, musical, and theatrical arts with technology, and Dane- zaa Dreamers’ traditions into imaginative experiences. – Garry Oker

What is Kema Experiences?

Kema Experiences provides a multi-sensory, interactive and immersive opportunity to experience Beaver culture. It provides hands-on opportunities to hear, taste, smell and try various Tsaa? che ne dane activities and foods. It also fuses visual, musical, and theatrical arts with technology, and Dane-zaa Dreamers’ traditions into imaginative experiences. Featuring the work of Garry Oker Art, and with cultural revitalization at its core, Kema Experiences uses the ancient Dane-zaa wisdom of finding alignment with self, with others, with physical environment and with spirit to help you find Kema (a good/sacred place) to access your greatest potential and find your song/passion.
