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.
