Spirit of the Peace Pow Wow is this being hosted this weekend in Taylor. 

What is a Pow Wow?  What are the dances about?  What’s an Intertribal?  What’s a Grand Entry?

We are excited to have Connie Greyeyes come share information and answer questions about the Pow Wow for a Lunch N Learn this week.  The Aboriginal Education Department will provide a light lunch.

Attached is the poster for this year’s Pow Wow and a newsletter from last years Pow Wow that will provide some background information.

Letting me know if you are interested in attending would be helpful so I can ensure we will have enough refreshments
