Pow Wows are the Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in dancing, singing, visiting, renewing old friendships, and making new ones.

This is a time to renew Native American culture and preserve the rich heritage of American Indians. It is also a time for worship, similar to the way other religions do.

It started at 12:00 with the Grand Entry, the Feast at 5:00, and 2nd Grand Entry at 7:00 pm.

This is the 22nd Annual Traditional Powwow and is based on honour, respect, and generosity. This is just another time that First Nations people can share their culture, history, and traditions.
