T´seka - Red Cedar Bark Ceremony
Potlatches today include two series of dances. The first series is called the T´seka or Red Cedar Bark Ceremony and it is the most sacred. All dancers in the T´seka wear cedar-bark in the form of headpieces, skirts, neck-rings, bracelets, or anklets depending on the dance. Sometimes researchers can identify unknown masks by the use of cedar-bark. Cedar-bark is never used in the Tła’sala or Peace Dances.
