10th Annual Traditional Powwow storms Conestoga

KITCHENER — On Saturday, February 8, the Doon Campus Rec Centre of Conestoga College was full of those interested in partaking in the 10th Annual Traditional Powwow — the largest indigenous cultural event in the region.

Hosted by the Wabanaki Confederacy and co-hosted by the Eagle Flight Singers, hundreds of dancers and visitors filled the dance arena to the songs of over five drum groups and singing groups, including a visiting group from northern Quebec. In another gymnasium, vendors and artisans also attracted crowds of visitors to taste strawberry juice and purchase beadwork.

The event was brought to the people by the Be-Dah-Bin Gamik Aboriginal Services at the college.
