Thanks to everyone who participated in making the 22nd Annual Community Pow Wow a success!

There were many community members who volunteered their time including the committed staff, drummers, dancers, cooks and vendors that we would like to say THANK YOU for your tireless work to make this day happen. This year’s sunrise ceremony had four pipe carriers present to give thanks for the day, offer prayers for the event and community, and to call in the ancestors to guide us.  Through the generosity of those who attended, we also spread awareness and raised funds for the Indigenous Spirit Fund (ISF).

Chi Miigwech, we look forward to next year’s Pow Wow.

Please enjoy the images we captured at the event in the gallery below.
