Quileute Wolf Dancers at TwiCon

Quileute Wolf Dancers to perform at 'Twilight' convention in Seattle

By Paige DickersonFans of the Twilight book and movie saga are gathering at a Seattle convention this weekend, and they'll get a taste of real Quileute tribal traditions and performers--not vampires and werewolves.

Carol Hatch, chairwoman of the Quileute tribe, as well as the Quileute Wolf Dancers from tribal school in LaPush will speak and perform at the event officially known as the Seattle Twilight Fan Convention--or TwiCon.

Also at the convention will be a few of the actors from the "Twilight" movies, fan discussion groups and, of course, merchandise relating to the best-selling book series and blockbuster movies, "Twilight" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon."
Comment:  The Quileutes continue to use the Twilight hoopla to their advantage. Good for them.
