The National Capital Region Croatian Folklore Ensemble CROATOAN originated in 1978, and this year celebrates its 40th Anniversary!

Over the last 40 years, CROATOAN has been an active participant in the cultural life of the Nation’s Capital, performing at various venues and festivals in the region, including multiple Canada Day celebrations. CROATOAN has also traveled to perform in various parts of Ontario and Quebec, including the Festivale Mondial du Folklore in Drummondville, Quebec, as well as to the United States where we have performed at festivals in Los Angeles and New York City. Croatoan is a member of the Canadian-Croatian Folklore Federation.

CROATOAN takes its name from an Indian tribe that lived on Roanoke Island in North Carolina in the 1500s and which is often associated in the American history books with John White’s lost colony. The tribe’s dialect contained many Croatian words and there is a strong probability that its members were descendants of native Indians and Croatian sailors who took part in the exploration voyages to the New World. Thus the name CROATOAN symbolizes both our Croatian and North American ties.

Our group strives to introduce and foster a love of Croatian folklore among Canadians of Croatian heritage, as well as anyone else that is interested in learning about Croatian folkloric traditions. Today the Ensemble numbers over 80 members in five dance groups and five tambura orchestras ranging in age from 5 years old to senior citizens. The board of directors ensures the continued devotion to Croatians and their rich cultural heritage through strategic leadership, record-keeping, fundraising, financial stewardship, artistic direction, costume creation/preservation, outreach, and provision of social occasions.
